Event Name:Galveston Beach Cleanup

Join the CAI Greater Houston Chapter Community Outreach Committee for a coastal cleanup on Galveston beach!

*Details TBD 

This year marks the 36th anniversary of the Texas Adopt-A-Beach program! Make plans to join us and volunteers around the world as we clean shores during the International Coastal Cleanup. Registration begins at 8:30 a.m. and the cleanup is from 9 am until noon.

Volunteers are asked to wear closed-toe shoes and bring plenty of drinking water. Adopt-A-Beach will provide all necessary cleanup materials.

About the Texas Adopt-A-Beach Program:

Since the first cleanup in 1986, more than 551,000 Texas Adopt-A-Beach volunteers have picked up nearly 10,000 tons of trash from Texas beaches, some of it originating from as far away as South America.

Due to tide patterns in the Gulf of Mexico, trash dumped anywhere in the gulf is likely to end up on a Texas beach. Volunteers record information such as the source and type of debris collected on data cards. This data has been instrumental in the passage of international treaties and laws aimed at reducing the amount of offshore dumping.

Keeping Texas beaches clean and safe is an economic as well as environmental priority. Coastal tourism, a $7 billion industry, and commercial fishing, a $1.9 billion business, demand clean beaches and a healthy gulf to thrive.
