Join us for a spring-cleaning beach cleanup on the south Texas coast!

Registration begins at 8:30 a.m. and the cleanup is from 9 till noon.

Volunteers are asked to wear closed-toe shoes and bring plenty of drinking water. We are also asking that you bring along your own set of gloves as we donated most of our inventory at the onset of COVID-19. Disposable, work or garden gloves work great! Adopt-A-Beach will provide all necessary materials.

Registration is required due to COVID-19. Please sign up today, one ticket per person, no group sign ups available this year. Registration will remain open until the end of the cleanup on April 17th.
