Start planning now for Beach Sweep/River Sweep 2017! The South Carolina Department of Natural Resources and SC Sea Grant Consortium invite you to participate the state's largest one-day litter cleanup. This is the 29th year for Beach Sweep/River Sweep Day and we need volunteers to make it a huge success!
Participants are needed to serve as either Site Captains or regular volunteers. Site Captains are the key people who make individual sweep events (cleanups) happen. Site Captains are local leaders who choose a location to cleanup and organize a group of volunteers to participate. Regular volunteers can join an existing group by contacting a Site Captain who is looking for additional help.
For more information on the Beach Sweep/River Sweep Day and to sign up, visit the DNR website.
The Gills Creek Watershed Association is helping to organize cleanups in the watershed. Our goal is cover the entire creek and its tributaries! Anyone can participate, including neighorhoods, home owners’ organizations, businesses, civic clubs, recreation clubs, individuals, families, school groups, church groups, and youth groups.
If you are interested in becoming a Site Captain and would like help identifying a location for cleanup, or if you just want to volunteer but don't have a group of your own contact Erich Miarka to find a group looking for additional help.
All participating groups will be featured on the Beach Sweep/River Sweep web site, and on the Gills Creek Watershed Association web site if you are in the watershed.
