33rd Annual Clean the Bay Day
Saturday June 4
Each year, on the first Saturday of June, thousands of Virginians simultaneously descend on the rivers, streams, and beaches of the Chesapeake Bay watershed to remove harmful litter and debris. Clean the Bay Day has been a staple for Virginia's Chesapeake Bay community since its inception more than three decades ago. A true Virginian tradition, it is an annual opportunity for individuals, families, military installations, businesses, clubs, civic and church groups to give back to their local waterways.
This short, three-hour annual event has a massive cumulative impact. Since 1989, Clean the Bay Day has engaged more than 158,200 volunteers, who have removed approximately 6.64 million pounds of debris from nearly 7,750 miles of shoreline in Virginia!
Registration is now open.
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.
