This Saturday, September 17th, marks the 24th Annual Coastal Cleanup, organized by Alabama PALS (People Against A Littered State) in Gulf Shores, Fort Morgan and Orange Beach. The event kicks off at 8 a.m., with volunteers from around the area walking designated sections of our beautiful coastline to insure the beaches are nice and tidy for everyone’s enjoyment.
“Approximately 5,000 volunteers picked up 100,000 pounds of litter from our treasured Gulf Coast region,” during the 2010 Coastal Cleanup, ensuring that thousands of others can enjoy our sugar white sand beaches. This year, volunteers will once again be combing the beaches to perfection, but will also be cleaning along the Hwy 59 corridor, from I-65 all the way to Gulf Shores. This will provide a brilliant introduction of the Gulf Coast to those traveling towards the Gulf Shores, Fort Morgan and Orange Beach areas.
Volunteers are encouraged to meet at one of the various gathering points on Saturday and be sure to bring water, sunscreen and a hat or visor of some kind. Along with individual sponsored sections of the coast, general volunteer meeting places along the beaches are the Public Beach in Gulf Shores, Fire Station One on Fort Morgan Peninsula, Gulf State Park Pavilion, Cotton Bayou beach access in Orange Beach, Boggy Point on Marina Road in Orange Beach or the Ono Island boat ramp in Orange Beach.
Kaiser Realty, Inc. is proud to be once again be a Sponsor of the Alabama Coastal Cleanup. The impact that the event directly has on our ecosystem is amazing, and coming together for this cause showcases the warm hearts and caring attitude of all those that call the Gulf Coast their home.
