  • Location: Galveston Beaches

This year marks the 35th anniversary of the Texas Adopt-A-Beach program! Make plans to join us and volunteers around the world as we clean shores during the International Coastal Cleanup. Registration begins at 8:30 a.m. and the cleanup is from 9 till noon at Menard Park: 27th and Seawall Blvd.

Volunteers are asked to wear closed-toe shoes and bring plenty of drinking water. Adopt-A-Beach will provide all necessary cleanup materials.

Advance reservations are preferred but onsite registration will be available. Online registration will remain open until the end of the cleanup on September 18th.

Adopt-a-Beach is allowing group and family registrations again. If you are signing up a group, you are responsible for the well-being of your attendees. It would be best to have them sign the liability waiver/registration form. You can turn in those forms the morning of the event to the site coordinator.

If you have any questions, please email us at beach@glo.texas.gov

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 an 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.
