Our annual cleanup spans across all three coastal counties in Mississippi. There are up to 30 different cleanup sites (see map below) volunteers can pick from during the registration process. Each site has a designated Site Captain who will be there to sign-in and gear up volunteers with everything needed for the cleanup (gloves, bags, data cards, etc.). Registration for the event is online and typically opens a few months prior to the event and will remain open until the day of the event. Volunteers can sign-up solo or as a group. The event is kid and family friendly, and we encourage anyone and everyone to join! A complimentary lunch is provided to volunteers after the event. 

This annual event is a part of the Ocean Conservancy's International Coastal Cleanup Event, and all data collected gets sent in and entered in the world-wide data pool!
