Volunteers are needed for an International Coastal Cleanup, which will be held on Saturday, Sept. 15 from 10 a.m. – Noon at Seahurst Park.

Here’s more from our friends at the Environmental Science Center:

Marine debris is a serious problem, but you can help! Join in the largest world-wide volunteer effort to protect the ocean.

All ages can take part in the cleanup at Seahurst Park, add found items to our Salmon Trash Sculpture or enjoy fun Earth-friendly activities in the Environmental Science Center.

The City of Burien is sponsoring the event and ESC is partnering with Puget Soundkeeper and the Ocean Conservancy to pitch-in.

Meet at ESC in Seahurst Park for cleanup supplies (past the restrooms, along the dirt path). The Ocean Conservancy is fighting for trash-free seas and smartphone users can download their Clean Swell app to document trash for local and worldwide counts. Puget Soundkeeper will tally found items, including microplastics, throughout the Puget Sound basin.
