Great Lakes group seeks helpers for beach cleanup


MILWAUKEE (WKOW) – A conservation group that restores the Great Lakes is looking for volunteers to help clean beaches in four states later this month.

The Alliance for the Great Lakes is holding its annual Adopt-a-Beach event on Saturday, September 21 on beaches in Illinois, Indiana, Michigan and Wisconsin.  The group is looking for individuals, school groups and community groups to show up at Great Lakes beaches for three hours and help pick up trash.

More than 17,000 pounds of garbage was collected last year when thousands of people showed up to help.  Volunteers also performed water-quality test to determine the lakes' health.
