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