Adopt A BeachThousands of Texans who care about the coast gathered for a fun-filled day at the beach today, Earth Day 2017, on Texas’ most popular beaches along the Texas Gulf Coast to help in the 31st GLO Adopt-A-Beach Spring Cleanup.
"The Adopt-A-Beach Spring Cleanup is a great day at the beach for a great cause," said Texas Land Commissioner George P. Bush. "There's no better way to get ready for summer season by cleaning up our Texas beaches at one of our 28 sites along the coast!"

"Many Texas industries rely on a healthy coast to thrive," said Commissioner Bush. "Keeping beaches clean is not just an environmental issue-it's an economic one as well. The Adopt-A-Beach program has been instrumental in keeping beaches clean throughout the last three decades, aiding tourism and commercial fishing industries while maintaining the coast for Texas families."

As always, volunteers from Clean Galveston were registering participants on the Seawall in Galveston. Buses brought school children from Fort Bend ISD, Katy, Alief Middle School, North Houston, Spring, Alvin and Manvel.  The first volunteers to return had found a puzzle on the beach.
