About this Event

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.

Reservations are 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.

If you are a parent or guardian with children under the age of 18, you will need to sign each child up individually. Please indicate on the order form who should be considered head of household to receive updates about the cleanup.

About the Texas Adopt-A-Beach Program:

Since our first cleanup in 1986, more than 551,000 Texas Adopt-A-Beach volunteers have picked up nearly 10,000 tons of trash from Texas beaches, some of it originating from as far away as South America.

Due to tide patterns in the Gulf of Mexico, trash dumped anywhere in the gulf is likely to end up on a Texas beach. Volunteers record information such as the source and type of debris collected on data cards. This data has been instrumental in the passage of international treaties and laws aimed at reducing the amount of offshore dumping.

Keeping Texas beaches clean and safe is an economic as well as environmental priority. Coastal tourism, a $7 billion industry, and commercial fishing, a $1.9 billion business, demand clean beaches and a healthy gulf to thrive.
