    • Each year, there are many coastal celebrations around July 4th that leave unwanted debris on our beaches and coastal parks from celebratory fireworks, streamers and/or balloons. Join LMC staff and volunteers as we trek our local beaches and collect discarded debris to keep our oceans clean, blue and trash free! If making a cleaner ocean for marine life isn’t enough, clean-up participants will each receive one drawing ticket for a chance to win a several awesome prizes, including a sea turtle adoption and plushie! Clean-up will begin at 9:00am on the back deck of LMC and last until 10:00am. Debris removed from all clean-up efforts get sorted, recorded and properly disposed by our amazing Sorting Team. For more information, please contact Demi Fox at dfox@marinelife.org.
