Brief Description of Event: 
9 locations cleaned throughout Queen Anne’s County! Please RSVP Here: Mandatory Electronic Participation Waiver Here: KIBCU's 7th year participating in this cleanup! The Ocean Conservancy partners with organizations and individuals around the globe to clean up the world’s beaches and waterways. Over nearly three decades, the annual International Coastal Cleanup has mobilized millions of people in the world's largest volunteer effort for our ocean and waterways. About the Cleanup: This is different than our other regularly scheduled cleanups in that we record the debris we collect onto a Data Card. At the end of the cleanup, KIBCU tallies up all of the debris and sends them to the Ocean Conservancy (OC). The OC then places all of the data from the worldwide event into a "Trash Free Seas" Report which can be used to help fight for policy changes locally and nationally. In the last 6 years, KIBCU has contributed to the International Coastal Cleanups grand total of debris collected! AGE AND PARTICIPATION WAIVER: All ages welcome! But if you are under 18 years of age and plan on attending alone or with friends, you will NEED to have your parent or guardian sign our "participation waiver" prior to your arrival. You can print our participation waiver here on our website. *All volunteers must sign a participation waiver for each cleanup.* SUPERVISION OF MINORS: We require children that are 12 years of age and under must be accompanied by a parent, other adult or a sibling over 16. All children under 18 years of age and under must check in and those 12 years of age and under must check in with the parent, adult or sibling when they arrive. Those parents, adults or siblings attending the event with the volunteer 12 years of age and under, must agree to stay with the child at all times. Kent Island Beach Cleanups and its Board of Directors and/or any Representative of Kent Island Beach Cleanups is not responsible for the child. What to bring: we provide our volunteers with disposable gloves and trash bags, but we encourage you to bring your own supplies if you wish. We have a limited supply of buckets, trash pickers and small, light-weight rakes that you can sign out to use and then return before you leave. If you have other supplies you may think will help, such as garden clippers, trash pickers, etc...please bring them. It never hurts to bring your friends, family and other like-minded volunteers as well! What to wear: sunscreen, bug spray, clothing that you do not mind getting a little dirty and boots or old sneakers.
