International Coastal Cleanup Day Saturday, September 25

Be a part of an international effort to clean up our coasts! Friends of Ka`ena are hosting a clean up at Ka`ena on Saturday, September 25th. We will meet at Camp Erdman at 9:00am.

This clean up is part of the Ocean Conservancy’s grassroots campaign. Every year in September, more than half-a-million people in 100 countries remove millions of pounds of trash from beaches and waterways all over the world-and collect data on what they find. Come join us! We will be meeting at Camp Erdman at 9am and will organize into teams to tackle the different types of trash found throughout the park. If you have any special equipment that might help, please contact us. Lunch will be provided after the clean up so come join us and be part of this world wide effort!
