22nd Annual Clean the Bay Day Needs Volunteers

Chesapeake BayHampton Roads, Virginia is gearing up for the 22nd Annual Clean the Bay Day. It will be held on Saturday, June 5th from 9 a.m. to noon. This is an opportunity for individuals, companies and groups to pitch in and clean up trash and debris from Virginia’s waterways and shorelines. The Chesapeake Bay Foundation is still looking for volunteers to go on foot and by boat.

Last year, more than 7,000 volunteers cleared 102 tons from nearly 500 miles of Virginia’s waterways. A group of us from Customer Magnetism is already signed up and ready to go. We will be at the Great Bridge Locks in Chesapeake. Some cities have all of the volunteers they need, but many are still in looking for help. Those under the age of 18 must have a signed parental permission form, which is available on the Chesapeake Bay Foundation website.

The Chesapeake Bay watershed affects two-thirds of Virginia’s population. Many of the rivers, creeks and streams are hampered by pollution and debris that needs to be removed. If you are in Virginia and aren’t busy this weekend, consider volunteering in one of the 27 participating localities.
