GSCCC Celebrates Clean Beaches Week (D/B/J/C/S/A)
GSCCC Celebrates Clean Beaches Week 2020!
July 1-7, 2020
Clean Beaches Week is an entire week to celebrate our beautiful beaches and ensure they stay clean, safe, and lovely for generations to come. Clean Beaches Week combines the spirit of Earth Day with the fun of the Independence Day and pumps up the fun for an entire week.
July 4 is the most popular beach day of the entire year, but it also results in the most litter on our shores! Clean Beaches Week is a way to be a wise steward and advocate for local beaches.
NOTE: When doing these activities remember, social distancing is recommended. The CDC defines social distancing as, “remaining out of congregate settings, avoiding mass gatherings, and maintaining distance (approximately 6 feet or 2 meters) from others when possible.” So, even when on a trail or just taking a walk in your neighborhood, remember our individual actions are small, but powerful measures to help “flatten the curve.”
