South Bay Beach & Marina Adopt-A-Beach Event
Date: Apr. 20, 2024
Time: 10:00 am - 2:00 pm


What:
Green Bay Sail & Paddle in partnership with Paradise North is hosting a beach cleanup as part of the Alliance for the Great Lakes’ Adopt-a-Beach program. Every year, thousands of volunteers participate in cleanups across all five Great Lakes. Volunteers remove tens of thousands of pounds of litter, most of it plastic, from Great Lakes shorelines.
 
When: 10:00 am to 2:00 pm, Saturday, April 20, 2024

Where: 101 Bay Beach Rd., Green Bay, WI, 54302. Volunteers should check in at Paradise North to get their clean up materials. After the clean up all volunteers who register by April 15th will receive a voucher for one free drink at Paradise North at the conclusion of our event. Kiddy Cocktails for those under 21!
 
Why: Volunteers clean up litter and record their findings in the Alliance for the Great Lakes’ online Adopt-a-Beach database. About 85% of the litter volunteers remove from Great Lakes shorelines is made of plastic. In addition to keeping Great Lakes beaches and shorelines clean, Adopt-a-Beach volunteers keep tens of thousands of pounds of plastic and other litter out of the Great Lakes each year. Plastic never goes away. It just breaks up into smaller pieces called “microplastics” that end up on our water.
 
The data volunteers collect is added to a global dataset for researchers to use to better understand plastic pollution. Communities can also use the data to understand and address the most common types of litter found on local shorelines.
 
How: Joining an Adopt-a-Beach event is easy and open to everyone. To join the event, volunteers can sign up online at: https://adopt.greatlakes.org/s/cleanup/a2oPm000000H1MHIA0/aab22959
