2:39pm | Volunteers for this month’s “30-Minute Beach Cleanup” being held Saturday, August 20, 2011 will have the chance to win two 20 inch bikes for their effort. Those interested in the bikes must be signed by 10:00 AM in order to receive a free raffle ticket.
The 30-Minute Beach Cleanup in Long Beach celebrated its 12th Anniversary of the monthly cleanup this past June. For the grassroots effort led by Justin Rudd, thousands of bags of trash have been collected and thousands of volunteers of all ages have helped to keep the beaches clean and safe by volunteering just 30 minutes on the third Saturday of each month at 10 a.m., regardless of the weather. Participants are advised that there is free parking at 1 Granada.
Refreshments from Duthie Power Services will be available immediately after on the beach at the end of Granada Ave. in Belmont Shore.
Justin Rudd, founder/organizer of the “30-Minute Beach Cleanup” emphasizes that this beach cleanup is essential to improving the aquatic environment as debris threatens wildlife and the overall ecosystem.
