Shoreline Cleanup Days

Point Isabel Regional Shoreline - February & March 2016

Bring your family out and enjoy a day along the shoreline near Point Isabel Regional Park, picking up micro-plastics and cleaning up the edges of the marshes.  A great way to spend the day showing your family why it is important to properly dispose of debris.  An adult should accompany children under 16 years old. In our efforts to "GO Green" and reduce the amount of waste, please bring a refillable water bottle, a bucket for trash, hat and gloves. All volunteers should wear closed toed shoes, appropriate layered clothing and bring sunscreen.
