Environmental activist volunteers protect river and marine environments during International Cleanup Day, 25 September 2010
It’s hard to picture six million tons of debris entering the oceans and waterways in one year. In fact, that’s what happens each and every year - harming wildlife and underwater environments. But this Saturday at Felton Covered Bridge Park, thanks to Save Our Shores, and the Ocean Conservancy’s International Cleanup Day, 25 September, SLVCORE.org and San Lorenzo Valley volunteers like you, will be joined by passionate environmental activists in 100 countries, using their time to remove harmful river and marine debris and collect data necessary for positive change.
Last year, more than 500,000 people in 100 countries documented and removed millions of pounds of trash from beaches and waterways all over the world and collected data on what they found.
The pinnacle cleanup event of the year, International Cleanup Day, is hosted each September by the Ocean Conservancy, and locally in partnership with organizations like Save Our Shores and SLVCORE.org. But cleanup efforts don’t just end in September. SLVCORE and dedicated volunteers tackle the devastating impacts of watershed pollution and inappropriate development year round.
