GCWA Beach Sweep/River Sweep 2015

Beach Sweep / River Sweep

Saturday, September 19, 2015, 9am - Noon

Organized by S.C. Sea Grant Consortium in partnership with S.C. Department of Natural Resources, this event is the largest one-day litter cleanup of South Carolina’s beaches and waterways. Every third Saturday in September thousands of South Carolinians volunteer to clear trash from our beaches, rivers, lakes, marshes, and swamps.

The Gills Creek Watershed Association is coordinating cleanups in the watershed. Anyone can participate, including neighorhoods, home owners’ organizations, businesses, civic clubs, recreation clubs, individuals, families, school groups, church groups, and youth groups.

It’s easy to take part. Simply round up a group of friends, identify a potential site that needs to be cleaned up, and pick a ‘Site Captain’ that can help organize the cleanup. Site captains should contact Erich Miarka to ensure their site is not already taken by another group. Go outside, clean up your community, then come home and watch the Gamecocks beat the Bulldogs that evening. Sounds like a great day! Your group will be featured on the Beach Sweep/River Sweep web site and on the Gills Creek Watershed Association web site.
