The 2015 Alabama Coastal Cleanup is scheduled for  Saturday, September 19th from 8:00 a.m. until noon.  This is the 28th year of the State's largest annual volunteer event.  Involved citizens, school groups, businesses and clubs walk or boat in 28 different zones throughout Mobile and Baldwin Counties.  Volunteers pick up what they find and record the data which is then submitted to The Ocean Conservancy to track what is getting into our oceans.  The information is used for education on the source of the debris and its effect on the environment.  During the past 27 years, over 77,000 volunteers have removed more than 1.5 million pounds of trash from Alabama's valued coastline and waterways.  Join us this year as we continue to make Alabama the Beautiful!

Supplies are limited. On the day of the event, come prepared with sunscreen, a hat, gloves, shoes and lots of water. It gets HOT!
