Texas Gears Up For Big Beach Clean Up

As many as 10,000 Texans are expected to hit the beach Sept. 27 for the Texas General Land Office’s Adopt-A-Beach Fall Cleanup.

The cleanup takes place at three Victoria area beaches, starting with registration at 8:30 a.m. Cleanup starts at 9 a.m. Post-cleanup celebrations begin at noon.

Volunteers can sign up online at or just show up at any participating beach that morning, except for the sites at St. Joseph Island and the John M. O’Quinn I-45 Estuarial Corridor and Virginia Point Peninsula Preserve, which require advance registration. Each volunteer will be given data cards, gloves, pencils and trash bags. All volunteers are advised to wear closed-toe shoes, bring sunscreen and plenty of drinking water. The Texas General Land Office Adopt-A-Beach Cleanups are held rain or shine.

Texans who are not able to attend the cleanup can help keep their beaches clean by making a tax-deductible donation online at There are several different Adopt-A-Beach sponsorship levels ranging from $25 to $25,000, allowing both individuals and corporations to contribute to this major cleanup effort.
