Join the fun at Earth Day Beach Clean Up in Port Townsend, Saturday, April 21

Washington CoastSavers event sponsored by the Port Townsend Marine Science Center with support from the Port Townsend Food Coop

On Saturday, April 21, volunteers from near and far will celebrate Earth Day weekend by picking up trash and debris along Olympic Peninsula coastlines during Earth Day Beach Clean Up. The annual Washington CoastSavers event is spearheaded locally by the Port Townsend Marine Science Center.

Because the PTMSC is the only check-in site on the eastern side of the Olympic Peninsula, scores of people from around the region are expected to register at the PTMSC Natural History Exhibit before heading out to clean area beaches at Fort Worden State Park, Fort Flagler State Park, Fort Townsend State Park, Chetzemoka Park and North Beach.

Check-in time at the PTMSC Natural History Exhibit is 11 a.m. and the debris receiving station closes at 5 p.m.

Once again, the Port Townsend Food Coop is offering valued support for Earth Day Beach Clean Up, providing $5 gift cards to be used the same day for all registered volunteers.

More information, including participant pre-registration, is available on the PTMSC website at:,cntnt01,show_event,0&cntnt01rid=400&cntnt01returnid=58#h1_anchor.
