International Coastal Cleanup 9/20 and 9/21

It is time for us to once again join the global community and raise awareness about our coastlines through the International Coastal Cleanup. Last year the CNMI had 2,035 participants pick up 10,915 pounds of trash at the International Coastal Cleanup event. This year we are aiming to increase the number of participants and hopefully decrease the amount of trash. Cleanups raise awareness and knowledge about the issues that face not only our oceans, but also our land. Trash endangers the health of humans, wildlife, and coastal economies. Now is the time to come together and work with the community to preserve and protect the land and the sea, even if it is only for one day. We would love to have you join the ICC team.

Saipan ICC will take place Friday, September 20 and Saturday, September 21. If you are interested in joining this event please find attached the sign up sheet and if you require further information contact Saipan Coordinator: Nicole Schafer, 664-8312.

Kind Regards,
Nicole Schafer
