[ARCHIVED] Volunteers Needed for Clean the Bay Day

Hampton is seeking volunteers to help pick up shoreline litter and debris on Clean the Bay Day Saturday, June 6, 2015, from 9:00 a.m. to 12 noon. Hundreds of volunteers on foot and in boats are needed for this annual shoreline cleanup, sponsored by the Chesapeake Bay Foundation and partner localities across Virginia.

Last year, more than 6,000 volunteers participated in Clean the Bay Day, removing approximately 110,000 pounds of trash along 460 miles of streams, rivers, and the Chesapeake Bay. Removing unsightly shoreline litter not only improves aesthetics but also enhances the health of our waterways and the fish and wildlife that depend on them.

To volunteer to help at a cleanup site near you, visit, send an e-mail to, or call 1-800/SAVEBAY. Early registration is advised. This is a family-friendly event for people of all ages. Children under 16 should be accompanied by a responsible adult.

Besides Hampton, major corporate sponsors for Clean the Bay Day include CSX, Norfolk Southern, Port of Virginia, Brown Advisory, River Network/Budweiser, Farm Fresh, HelioSage, Entercom Communications, Inside Business, and AltDaily.
