International Coastal Cleanup
Let's clean up BCB!
When: Saturday, September 19th at 9 AM
Where: Blind Creek Beach
The International Coastal Cleanup began more than 30 years ago, when communities rallied together with the common goal of collecting and documenting the trash littering their coastline. The Cleanup has grown immensely in the 30 years since the first Cleanup. Volunteers from states and territories throughout the U.S. and more than 100 countries come together each year and participate in a Cleanup event near them.
In fact, every year during Ocean Conservancy’s International Coastal Cleanup®, hundreds of thousands of volunteers comb lakes, rivers and beaches around the world for trash. For over three decades, more than 12 million volunteers have collected over 220 million pounds of trash.

Beach Ambassadors assist with the safety and security of beach visitors at BCB. Seeing their distinctively colored hats as they walk along the sand psychologically gives the same sense of authority as a nearby police car does on a city street. One of the important goals of the Beach Ambassadors is to protect beach visitors from occasional troublemakers within the legal limits of our authority. Join us for a training session that discusses several other goals. You'll get a copy of the Beach Ambassador training manual and related material to take home with you.
By the way, if you've got any ideas on what kind of distinctive hats Beach Ambassadors should wear so you will be recognized by beachgoers, we'd like to hear your ideas. If you've found some head gear online or elsewhere that you think will work, bring that info with you.
