Looking for a way to celebrate Earth Day? Join Puget Soundkeeper for our Earth Day Cleanup at Golden Gardens! This cleanup will take place in two, two-hour shifts between 10am–2pm on Saturday, April 22nd.
We will use the ETAP protocol (Escaped Trash Assessment Protocol) at this event. ETAP is a survey method created by the Environmental Protection Agency to standardize, characterize, and quantify debris. It compares trends in trash that escapes waste management systems and ends up on our beaches and in our waterways. It is a simple, but meticulous, collection of all human-created debris within a defined area, which are then categorized, counted and weighed. Soundkeeper uses ETAP to assist in developing policy and legislative tools to reduce marine debris in Puget Sound.
This is a family-friendly event. Click here to register and join us on April 22nd for ETAP!
