30th Annual Clean the Bay Day
Saturday, June 2, 2018
Tidewater Virginia – multiple locations

Each year, on the first Saturday of June, thousands of Virginians descend on the rivers, streams, and beaches of the Chesapeake Bay watershed to remove harmful litter and debris. Clean the Bay Day is an annual opportunity for families, military installations, businesses, clubs, civic, or church groups to give back to local waterways.

Since 1989, Clean the Bay Day has engaged over 152,000 volunteers, who have removed approximately 6.4 million pounds of debris from nearly 7,390 miles of shoreline in Virginia.
