The Adopt-A-Beach program is not just about litter. It’s about the need for clean oceans, shorelines, and waterways. It is about residents working together to create permanent solutions to shoreline and marine debris. Our oceans and waterways have been a dumping ground for man-made debris for thousands of years. The harmful effects of litter are severe: negative economic and aesthetic impacts, harm and risk to human health and safety, injury and death to animals through entanglement and ingestion, and habitat destruction.
Additionally, the Adopt-A-Beach program fosters feelings of pride and ownership as local residents begin to care for “their” beach and it gives people of all ages the opportunity to learn about and actively participate in conserving coastal resources.
