NORFOLK -- If you want to help improve the look of area shorelines, the Chesapeake Bay Foundation wants to hear from you.
The group is now recruiting volunteers for the 26th annual Clean the Bay Day on Saturday, June 7, from 9 a.m. until noon.
Thousands of volunteers are needed on foot and in boats to help pick up litter and debris along the shoreline of the Chesapeake Bay and its many rivers and streams.
Last year, more than 6,000 volunteers participated, removing approximately 125,000 pounds of litter and debris along 500 miles of shoreline.
“The Bay and its waterways work for us every single day, boosting our economy and quality of life,” said Tanner Council, CBF Clean the Bay Day coordinator. “Protecting and restoring the Bay requires everyone doing their share to reduce pollution. Clean the Bay Day is a great, practical way for individuals to give a few hours back and make a big difference.”
