On Friday and Saturday, June 3 and 4, 2016, approximately 919 Navy active duty and civilian volunteers from nine installations participated in Clean the Bay Day. Clean the Bay Day is an event to remove harmful litter and debris from the Bay's waters and shore.
In just three hours these volunteers removed roughly 48,830 pounds of harmful debris along more than 72 miles of streams and shoreline. This year, the most common items found were: plastic bottles, plastic bags, cans and cigarette butts.
Thank you to our community for continuing to volunteer in this legacy cleanup event.
See you in June 2017!
