Clean the Bay Your Way

Can't make it June 3? This year's event is all about making efforts big and small. From June 4-10 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 Your Way site for more information.

Please keep the following in mind throughout your clean up on Saturday:

  • Safety First! If you can, please wear close-toed shoes or boots, pants, work gloves, apply sunscreen, and don't overdo it—you should never overexert yourself on Clean the Bay Day. This should be fun!
  • This is a rain or shine event. Only a thunderstorm will cause a cancellation. And note that litter moves with the rain, so even a little rain can make for a productive clean up!
  • Bring water in a reusable container and perhaps a snack to keep your energy up.
  • Double check the time and date of your clean-up. Most, but not all, clean-ups occur on Saturday, June 3, from 9:00 a.m.-noon. 
  • Plan to arrive at least 15 minutes early for registration/check-in.
  • We love photos and videos! Share yours on social media with #CleanTheBayDay and tag us (@chesapeakebay on Facebook and Twitter, @chesapeakebayfoundation on Instagram).
  • If you have already registered for an event and have not heard from your area coordinator yet, please double check your emails/spam filters. Feel free to email us at [email protected] for help.
  • And, of course . . . have fun!

Again, thank you so much for your involvement with Clean the Bay Day. You are what makes this program a resounding success. We look forward to seeing you Saturday!
