"It was truly an honor to work alongside thousands of volunteers to remove over 73,000 pounds of trash from the Texas coast during the Spring Adopt-A-Beach Coastwide Cleanup in April," said Commissioner Buckingham. "This fall, I challenge Texans and volunteers from across the country to help make the upcoming coastwide cleanup another resounding success by seizing this opportunity to show our appreciation and respect for Texas’ beaches, their ecosystems and our coastal communities. Through the GLO's Adopt-A-Beach-Program we can continue to build a better future for our beautiful Texas coastline."
