Cleveland Students Participate in Adopt a Beach Program
On Friday, September 24th a group of 29 fourth and fifth grade students and staff from Cleveland Elementary School enjoyed a walk to and from Hika Bay Park in Cleveland to pick up, chart, and bag up debris collected on the beach.
This beach cleanup was part of the International Coastal Cleanup (ICC); a worldwide event coordinated each year in the fall by the Alliance for the Great Lakes. Each year over 450,000 people worldwide pick up over 4 million pounds of garbage on beaches and rivers. The Cleveland students walked to the beach and picked up an estimated 19 pounds of garbage from Hika Bay beach in Cleveland. The ICC has been collecting data from the debris collected on beaches and waterways around the world since 1986. This is the sixth year that Cleveland students have participated in the beach clean up program.
