AUSTIN — Volunteers are encouraged to sign up for the Annual Adopt-A-Beach Fall Cleanup on Saturday, September 21, 2019. The Texas General Land Office Adopt-A-Beach Fall Cleanup will take place at thirty different locations coast wide across Texas. Volunteers can sign up at www.texasadoptabeach.org or show up onsite to take part in a fun-filled day of giving back to our community and taking care of the Texas coast.

“The Adopt-A-Beach Annual Fall Cleanup continuously provides the perfect opportunity for Texans to come together and restore our Texas beaches,” said Commissioner George P. Bush. “What better way to beat the Texas heat and give back to our state's shorelines than by participating in the GLO's Fall Adopt-A-Beach event. Friends, families and community groups  alike are encouraged to serve alongside the GLO as we tackle pollution left behind from beachgoers.”

The Texas General Land Office Adopt-A-Beach program began in the fall of 1986, when 2,800 volunteers picked up 124 tons of trash.  Since then, more than 533,000 volunteers have removed more than 9,600 tons of trash from Texas beaches. Each volunteer will be given data cards, gloves, pencils and trash bags. All volunteers are advised to wear closed-toe shoes, bring sunscreen and plenty of drinking water. The Texas General Land Office Adopt-A-Beach cleanups are held rain or shine!
 
Texans who are not able to attend the cleanup can help keep our beaches clean by making a tax-deductible donation online at www.TexasAdoptABeach.org. There are several different Adopt-A-Beach sponsorship levels ranging from $25 to $25,000, allowing both individuals and corporations to contribute to this major cleanup effort.
