Sheboygan Beaches Need Your Help

September 22, 2020
Beaches across Sheboygan have been busier than ever this summer, as an ideal setting to relax outside and enjoy the serenity of Lake Michigan.  Beach Cleanups provide another opportunity to enjoy these special places while also giving back by cleaning up the litter that accumulates on the beaches.  You can help by registering to volunteer during the event on September 26th or by signing up to do your own individual cleanup at any beach, on any day!

Last year, 100 volunteers worked to collect over 400 pounds of litter from our beaches, preventing this trash from harming wildlife and water quality.  Local neighborhood groups including Friends of North Point, Friends of Peace Park Sheboygan, the King Park Neighborhood Association, and Of Water, Land and Sky teamed up to clean four sites along the Sheboygan Lakeshore in spring and fall of 2019.  This spring’s cleanups were postponed, so extra help is needed from members of the community to make an even greater impact this fall.  

These cleanups are coordinated by the Sheboygan River Basin Partnership and Lakeshore Natural Resource Partnership (LNRP) as a part of a major Midwest effort organized by the Alliance of the Great Lakes, which brings together 13,000 volunteers from the Great Lakes region to collect tens of thousands of litter each year through its Adopt-a-Beach program.  Join in on Saturday, September 26th or pick any beach, any day to hold your own DIY Beach Cleanup!  Pre-registration is required; please visit https://adopt.greatlakes.org/s/find-a-cleanup to sign up for a cleanup event on September 26th or email kendra@lnrp.org. for more information about how to host your own private event.
