LONG BEACH, Wash. - The Grass Roots Garbage Gang's next Community Beach Cleanup takes place from 9:30 a.m. to noon Sunday, April 25 on the Long Beach Peninsula.
Organizers say it's easy to participate. Just dress for the weather, bring a pair of good gloves and join in any one of four ways:
1) Visit any major beach approach on the Peninsula about 9:30 a.m. GRGG coordinators will be located at Seaview, Bolstad Avenue, Cranberry Road, Klipsan Beach, Bay Avenue in Ocean Park and Oysterville Road. They will sign you in, give you supplies, direct you to the designated cleaning spot and provide guidance for collection bags disposal.
2) If you are interested in working with a dedicated adopt-a-beach group that cleans a section of beach near you, contact firstname.lastname@example.org for information. These groups would love your help and your company.
3) If you have an interest in adopting your own small section of beach to clean each quarter, the same e-mail address can get you connected.
4) You can just walk out to the beach from your home and start collecting. Pacific County and the City of Long Beach will provide disposal of all litter collected.
A thank-you lunch will be served to all volunteers from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Peninsula Senior Center. Jack's Country Store, Okie's Sentry Supermarket, Berry Patch Restaurant and individuals who are dedicated to the community donate all foods and supplies.
The Grass Roots Garbage Gang is a local, all-volunteer community on the Long Beach Peninsula that organizes quarterly community beach cleanups and is dedicated to maintaining a clean and safe beach .
