WHAT IS BEACH SWEEP?
August 2022 | Around the Pontchartrain Basin
Our 33rd Annual Beach Sweep is coming up soon! As we head into the peak of storm season, it's more important than ever to get out and clean our streets, parks, yards, and storm drains that are filled with debris. Be a part of Beach Sweep in August and help restore our community while you also put litter in its place. We still encourage you to register to receive approved volunteer hours and track your trash if you can!
Beach Sweep is the biggest community cleanup in Southeastern Louisiana. Last year we picked up trash from our streets, catch basins, and waterways around the basin. All throughout the region, we can care for the neighborhoods and areas that drain into the Pontchartrain Basin. We'll clean curbs, ditches, and storm drains on city streets and rural roadways. We encourage individuals and groups to safely volunteer during August. Help end litter in Louisiana while being a part of the International Coastal Cleanup!

CLEAN SWELL APP
We want to help you track your impact! You can track how much and what kind of debris you picked up through the Clean Swell app.
Storm Aware & Prepare concluded on Aug 20th, 2022 to great success! It was a beautiful day at the New Canal Lighthouse and we gave away all hurricane prep supplies to our community. Thank you to all partner organizations and volunteers who made Storm Aware and Prepare possible: Entergy, NOLA Ready, Restore the Mississippi River Delta, Second Harvest, Resilience Force, and more!
