Volunteers who wish to help out at the lakefront can volunteer through Adopt-a-Beach, a program of the Alliance for the Great Lakes.

• Adam Tinkham will lead the South Boulevard Beach team beginning at 9 a.m. on April 15

• Team Ted Glasoe will clean up Lee Street beach from 9 to 11 a.m. on April 23.
The trash goes in the trash can, and the information collected goes to the Alliance.

Eventually all the Adopt-a-Beach event totals from all around the Great Lakes are added together. The information helps determine policy and strategy for reducing pollution and keeping the water clean, clear and safe.
