Registration open for Sept. 20 International Coastal Cleanup

Registration opened this week for the Sept. 20 International Coastal Cleanup, Washington CoastSavers announced recently.

The volunteer cleanup effort will stretch from the Long Beach Peninsula to the Olympic Peninsula

"The annual coastal cleanup is one of the most inspiring events we participate in each year,” Don Hoch, director of Washington State Parks, said in a prepared statement. “It's heartening to see hundreds of caring volunteers get out and make a real difference by cleaning up our ocean beaches for the benefit of wildlife, habitats and the citizens who enjoy visiting our beautiful Pacific coast."

Washington CoastSavers, a collection of organizations and volunteers founded in 2007, requests volunteers register at coastsavers.org.
