Traverse City Beach Cleanups Saturday

Sept. 22, 2020

In commemmoration of The Alliance for the Great Lakes day of action on Saturday, Sep. 26, Inland Seas Education Association (ISEA) will host morning and afternoon "beach" cleanups in Traverse City. Volunteers are asked to register so the organization has enough supplies for everyone. 

The cleanups will take place from 9am-noon (Sunset Park to F&M Park) and from 1:30pm–3:30pm (Randolph Street to Dog Park). "We are all so lucky to live in an area that cares for our beaches," shared Rachel Ratliff, ISEA Great Lakes Educator. "Even though many of them are well kept, any litter in our area is in danger of becoming beach trash."

ISEA representatives say that "many organizations choose to clean up beaches, but ISEA chose neighborhoods close to the water because one rainstorm or wind event can carry hundreds of improperly discarded items from the streets into our storm drains, onto the beach, or in the water."

Participants are encouraged to register here; detailed information will then be emailed to them. Participants are also asked to dress for the weather, wear a mask, and bring any pickup assistance (e.g., reacher/grabber) they'd like. Trash bags and gloves will be provided.
