Brief Description of Event: 
Trash washes up on our beaches constantly, in the form of plastic, balloons and other materials. Join us for a beach cleanup to keep Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge's beaches clean and trash free. Every piece of trash we collect is a piece of trash that will not be eaten by or entangle wildlife. This beach cleanup is also part of the International Coastal Cleanup effort, which logs trash collected around the globe. The results from our cleanup are analyzed and shared worldwide. We hope you will join us!
