CORPUS CHRISTI – Over a dozen student-athletes at the Island University took part in the Adopt-A-Beach Program on Saturday, April 20. The Islanders were in charge of cleanup at the campus beach, located just across Ocean Drive on the campus of Texas A&M – Corpus Christi.
Thousands of Adopt-A-Beach volunteers remove an average of 500 tons of trash each year from Texas beaches. Through two large- scale cleanups, and a number of smaller ones, Texans arrive by the thousands to show their dedication to keeping Texas beaches clean.
Since 1986, more than 439,000 volunteers have removed 8,400 tons (more than 17 million pounds) of trash from Texas beaches and estuaries. For more information on the Adopt-A-Beach program, click here.
