The event will start with a presentation on local marine debris research. Afterwards, participants will hike along Grove's Creek, collecting marine debris and recording information to be compiled in a global report on the amount and type of litter found on beaches. Please come prepared with sun protection, comfortable shoes and a water bottle.
