ALERT: Adopt-A-Beach Cleanup

The 26th Texas General Land Office Adopt-A-Beach Spring Cleanup will be held Saturday, April 28, from 9 a.m. to noon, at 30 sites along the Texas coast. 

Texas became the nation’s first all-volunteer beach cleanup in 1986 and boasts one of the biggest all-volunteer beach cleanups in the world. More than 10,000 Texans are expected to participate in the Adopt-A-Beach Spring Cleanup this year. 

Volunteers may register on-line for the Spring Cleanup at or at 29 of the 30 check-in sites (advanced registration required for St. Jo Island) beginning at 8:30 a.m. Each volunteer will be given data cards, gloves, pencils and trash bags. All volunteers are advised to wear closed-toe shoes, bring sunscreen and plenty of drinking water.

Texans who are not able to attend the cleanup can help keep their beaches clean by making a tax-deductible donation online at

There are several different Adopt-A-Beach sponsorship levels ranging from $25 to $25,000, allowing both individuals and corporations to contribute to this major cleanup effort. Statewide coastal cleanups are held every spring and fall.
