Great Minnesota Beach Sweep 2009

September 27, 2009
2:00 - 4:00 p.m.

Sea Grant is a sponsor of the Great Minnesota Beach Sweep 2009. The beach sweep involves thousands of volunteers across Minnesota who will collect manmade debris from beaches, riverbanks, and streams in late September.

Minnesota Beach Sweep started 13 years ago in Duluth, Minn., when the Great Lakes Aquarium partnered with the Ocean Conservancy for the International Coastal Clean-up (ICC). Along with trash, volunteers also collect data about the debris, which becomes part of the global database and is used to enhance efforts to protect and restore global waterways.

To join the Great Minnesota Beach Sweep of 2009 in Duluth, show up by 2 PM at Lester Park, Chester Park, or the Boy Scout Public Boat Access for Perch Lake (on the south end of Commonwealth Street, next to River Place Campground and Bait).

For more information, contact Margret Scott, Minnesota Beach Sweep Coordinator at 218.740.3473 ext. 1025; mscott@glaquarium.org.
