September 18, 2021, 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM @ Shem Creek Park
Help improve the water quality in Shem Creek by participating in Beach Sweep/River Sweep. This event is South Carolina's largest one-day volunteer cleanup event of its kind. Every 3rd Saturday in September, from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m., thousands of South Carolinians clear beaches, rivers, lakes, marshes, and swamps of aquatic debris. The cleanup, organized by the S.C. Sea Grant Consortium and S.C. Department of Natural Resources. The Sweep takes place in conjunction with the International Coastal Cleanup, coordinated by the Ocean Conservancy.
Once the Sweep is over, the Ocean Conservancy tallies all of the debris data. This data helps us learn the sources of litter so we can stop pollution before it starts. Town of Mount Pleasant Stormwater Staff will be site captains at this location. Also, there are other locations regionally for volunteers to participate.
