Cleanliness is not only next to Godliness,
Cleanliness is next to faith in the future,
respect for the past and a willingness
to commit our energies today!

30TH ANNUAL ADOPT-A-BEACH CLEAN UP

APRIL 23, 2016 -- THE TEXAS COAST

Here is a listing of what you need to do for the April 23rd Adopt-a-Beach Clean Up.  Please go ahead and register online whether you are a group or individual.  This helps us plan for the thousands of folks that come to help that day.  The Clean Up check in and registration location in Galveston is at 27th & Seawall.  This is also where you pick up your supplies.  Lunch is still in the planning stages and there are no details at this time, and is not guaranteed.  There is a deadline for online registration, but you can also register on site if you don't make the cut off.  See FAQ's link below that can also help prepare your group for basic questions.

Questions from the past:

How late will you be set up at the Menard Park in Galveston?
We begin check in/registration at 8:30 and are usually off the property between 1 & 2 pm.

Should everyone register online? Can some register on site? What is the benefit to it?
We have upwards of 3000 people that we plan for to volunteer for the event. Everyone that can register online prior to the event the faster we can get you through check in and provide supplies.

Will there be enough Adopt a Beach patches to give away?
We have not run out before.

Will there be enough food for all that register?
We are planning, but cannot guarantee at this time.

Will there be enough trash bags and gloves for everyone registered?
We have not run out before.

Will there be t-shirts for sale this year?
Yes.

How do you figure out which areas to send people to clean? Can they go to any spot?
When groups check in they are assigned an area in Galveston based on their size and how many other groups have checked in before you. We try our best to be accommodating, but have to make assignments based on our Beach Guardians and allow them to have their location over any other group.


On Friday, May 10, 2013, the City of Galveston dedicated the new dog park located at Menard Park in Honor of longtime island residents Jim and Pat McCloy. The McCloy's have been ardent supporters of our community and true animal lovers. It gave the Board and members of Clean Galveston, Inc., ( a Keep America Beautiful/Keep Texas Beautiful organization) great pride in donating the landscaping for this park and recommending the dedication. The McCloy's have been involved with our organization for 30 years, and we couldn't think of a better project than landscaping this park and dedicating it in their honor.
