Clean the Bay Day DIY

Can't make it on June 4? This year's event is all about making efforts big and small. From May 30-June 3, you can conduct your own clean-up effort on smaller sites like your private property, school, workplace, or anywhere else you have permission. Please make sure you're able to dispose of any trash collected yourself. Visit the Clean the Bay Day DIY site for more information.
