Adopt-a-Beach™ Spring Clean Up, Lee Street Beach, Evanston

  • Lee Street Beach 1111 Lake Shore Boulevard Evanston, IL, 60202 United States (map)

Join us for an Earth Day Weekend beach cleaning. We'll be clearing Lee Street Beach of trash and other "non-native" items. Everything we find we catalog and bag. The trash goes in the trash can, and the information collected goes to the Alliance for the Great Lakes (www.greatlakes.org). 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.
