Since the Aquarium opened in 2012, the Splash Fund has led beach cleanup efforts each summer. Over the years, we have hosted 31 events with 425 volunteers who collected nearly 1,400 pounds of trash and recyclables. Like all Splash Fund initiatives, Adopt-A-Beach cleanups are a community effort, carried out in collaboration with the Alliance of the Great Lakes, Cleveland Metroparks, Greater Cleveland Aquarium and hundreds of concerned Northeast Ohioans eager to make a difference. Interested in donating a few hours to help keep our Great Lake great? Sign up today and we’ll be in touch with details closer to your volunteer date.
