Saturday, September 16th is International Coastal Cleanup Day! People around the world will head out to remove accumulated trash from their local shorelines and beaches. Together, we will document the types of debris entering our waterways in an effort to inform practical solutions to the global problem of marine trash.
Participating Puget Sound locations are marked on the map. Click on a pin to view registration details for each event, or contact Kathryn Davis to add a location near you!

Trash data will be collected at each event. Prepare for the big day by downloading the CleanSwell app . Hard copies of data cards will also be provided.
Puget Sound trash data will be added to both a local and global report. View the 2016 findings here.
