Lake Pontchartrain Basin Foundation Beach Sweep 2017

Details

Lake Pontchartrain Basin Foundation will hold its 28th annual Beach Sweep presented by Toyota, a day designated to clean up around the Lake Pontchartrain Basin, on Saturday, September 16, 2017.  LPBF's Beach Sweep is held in conjunction with the International Coastal Cleanup sponsored by Ocean Conservancy.  Volunteers, partners, and sponsors help care for the areas that drain the Pontchartrain Basin by cleaning curbs, ditches, and storm drains on city streets and rural roadways.  Designated areas for cleanup around the lake include Orleans, Jefferson, St. Charles, St. Tammany, and East Baton Rouge parishes.  To view the Zone Map, click here.

To say thank you to the volunteers, on Beach Sweep day LPBF's Beach Sweep partners provide picnics for registered participants.  The picnic is a way to bring everyone together to celebrate the clean sweep of our region.  Beach Sweep is an excellent avenue for stewardship and education/outreach.  It provides a wonderful opportunity to help in keeping Lake Pontchartrain swimmable.
