Coastal cleanup seeks volunteers



AUGUSTA — The Maine Coastal Program is looking for volunteers for Maine’s Coastweek Coastal Cleanup, which begins Saturday, Sept. 15, and runs through Saturday, Sept. 22. This year marks the 30th anniversary of one of Maine’s largest volunteer events.

With dozens of cleanup locations needing for volunteers, anyone interested in keeping Maine’s coastal shoreline and waterways clean has ample opportunity to participate. In Hancock County, cleanups are scheduled on Sept. 15 for Surry at 9 a.m. and Lamoine State Park at 10 a.m.

Interested participants can visit the Maine Coastal Program online at maine.gov/dmr/mcp to find a location in need of volunteers or to register as a cleanup coordinator at one of dozens of sites along the Maine coast.
