Coastal Bend Bays Foundation – Adopt-A-Beach

2022 Spring Beach Cleanup is a Moneymaker!

Show me the money! Spring Adopt-A-Beach Cleanup was a success in many ways. Packery flats had 23 volunteers, 43 bags of trash over a 1-mile stretch, and money found amongst the trash. Volunteers found a $10 bill, $5 good lottery ticket, and a 2022 beach parking sticker still in the bag, worth $12. Thank you to these awesome volunteers for helping clean up our beautiful Coastal Bend! Be sure to save the date for our next cleanup, September 17 at Packery Flats!

Cleanup Site Info: The clean up area will include tidal flats and marsh habitats along two miles of Highway 361, from the Packery Channel bridge to the Kates Hole Access Parking Lot.

On the day of the clean up, you will drive through to pick up a bag of clean up supplies and instructions on where to go clean, and where to leave your trash. The drive through pick up location will be located at the main Packery Flats Parking Lot, on the left about 1 mile north of Zahn Rd. Each clean up bag will contain Up2U mesh litter bag, gloves and snacks.

Volunteers are asked to wear closed-toe shoes, bring plenty of drinking water, hat, bug spray and sunscreen.

Be sure to download the Clean Swell ® app to track items you collect. Using the Clean Swell® app will make recording your trash pickup progress fun and simple!
