Volunteers Needed For Chesapeake Bay Cleanup

On Saturday, June 4, thousands will take to the beaches along the Chesapeake Bay to partake in one of Virginia's largest volunteer cleanup efforts - "Clean the Bay Day."

The 23rd Annual Clean the Bay Day is scheduled to begin at 9:00 AM and goes until 12:00 noon. Currently the Chesapeake Bay Foundation is looking for more volunteers to join in and help the bay clean up.

Individuals, families, businesses, and groups will help cleanup litter along the coastline and beyond. Citizens will work on foot and by boat to restore and protect the Chesapeake Bay and its watershed.

The event hopes to raise awareness about pollution issues beneath the surface.

Last year 7,430 volunteers removed 217,641 lbs of debris at 245 sites along 419 miles of Chesapeake Bay watershed shorelines.

Those who wish to volunteer should visit  Cleanup sites are available throughout Virginia's Eastern Shore.
