EastBayRI reports that the environmental group Save The Bay is recruiting volunteers for Rhode Island’s International Coastal Cleanup, scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 17, at more than 80 sites throughout the state.

More than 2,100 volunteers are needed to help beautify Rhode Island beaches and shoreline by picking up trash and debris along some 60 miles of Rhode Island coastline. The International Coastal Cleanup, organized by the Washington, D.C.-based Ocean Conservancy and locally by Save The Bay, is the largest global volunteer effort on behalf of the ocean.
