International Coastal Cleanup - Blanchard Beach, Burlington, Vermont

Vermont version of the International Coastal Cleanup. We were part of a force of millions of people all over the world spending a few hours picking up marine debris along our favorite waterways from rivers to the sea.

Saturday, September 20, 10-12
We cleaned up litter and collected data along Lake Champlain at Blanchard Beach, (next to Oakledge park), Burlington VT. 
Sponsored and organized by Rachel Z. Miller, Co-Founder/Executive Director/Chief Ocean and Lake Lover
Rozalia Project for a Clean Ocean.

It was fun and we made a difference!

Rachel scores a ReUse item from the beach clean up. 

Gloves are good. 

                                               Preserve, protect, keep Vermont clean and green.

                                                                                   Somebody under there?

                                           One might wish sand in this Marie's coffee, seeing as she left litter on our sand.

                                                         Do Not Pull the Tab - the Lake will escape down the drain. 

                                                               For wildlife litter is TERMINAL.
