2016 Clean the Bay Day

posted in: Environmental Issues, Events | 0

The Chesapeake Bay Foundation (CBF) and its local partners across Virginia are now recruiting volunteers for the 28th Clean the Bay Day. CBF’s annual shoreline cleanup is scheduled this year for Saturday, June 4, 2016, from 9 a.m. until noon.

Thousands of volunteers are needed on foot and in boats to help pick up litter and debris along the shorelines of the Chesapeake Bay and its many rivers and streams. Last year, more than 6,000 volunteers participated in Clean the Bay Day, removing approximately 110,000 pounds of litter and debris along 450 miles of shoreline.

Cleanup sites are available throughout Hampton Roads, Virginia’s Eastern Shore, in Northern and Central Virginia, the Shenandoah Valley, and at many state parks. To register at a site near you, visit cbf.org/clean, send an e-mail to ctbd@cbf.org, or call 1-800/SAVEBAY. Early registration is advised.

Major corporate sponsors for Clean the Bay Day include CSX, Norfolk Southern, The Port of Virginia, and AltDaily.
