CBF is extremely proud of our partnership with the United States Navy, one of our oldest and most productive partners in Clean the Bay Day. In fact, the participation of our servicemen and women and their families represents one of the largest percentages of volunteers, debris collected, and shoreline cleaned of all our partners. We thank them for their support of Clean the Bay Day and for their service and contributions year round. Many of our local military installations participate in Clean the Bay Day on the Friday before the main event. If you are a service member, we suggest you contact your command to inquire about volunteering.
