Are you passionate about protecting our waterways? Make sure you mark your calendar for the Ocean Conservancy’s International Coastal Cleanup on Sept. 21.
The initiative began more than 30 years ago, when different communities rallied together with the common goal of collecting and documenting the trash littering their coastlines.
