On the day of the cleanup, you will drive through to check in and pick up a bag of cleanup 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 Bayside Parking Lot – SH 361, Mustang Island, 1 mile north of Zahn Rd. Each clean up bag will contain Up2U mesh litter bag, gloves and possibly some cool swag.

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

Safety Sheet


Spring 2022 Beach Cleanup was 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!
