Looking for a family-friendly, fun volunteer activity? Friends of Waukegan Beach and Waukegan Main Street are teaming up to clean up our own lovely stretch of beach as part of the Alliance for the Great Lakes annual September Adopt-a-Beach™ Event. The event is part of the International Coastal Cleanup where thousands of volunteers remove trash and collect data on their findings.
Mark your calendar for Saturday, September 21st at 10am. We will provide bags. Bring your own gloves or pickers if you have them. Have fun giving back to the places you care about. The Great Lakes shoreline – and especially Waukegan Municipal Beach – is right in our back yard.
The Alliance is devoted 100 percent to the lakes and works with scientists, policymakers, businesses, community groups and everyday citizens to protect and restore the world’s largest surface freshwater resource. From forging forward-looking policies to promoting education to on-the-ground efforts to improve thousands of miles of Great Lakes shoreline, they are out front and behind the scenes, caring for the lakes since 1970.
