Texas Adopt-A Beach

Turtle Island Restoration Network

Adopt-A-Beach

The Texas Adopt-A-Beach program, an all-volunteer effort, is dedicated to preserving and protecting Texas beaches. The program's success is due to the generous efforts of dedicated volunteer county coordinators, coastal community leaders, sponsors and citizens. Strong support from the private sector helps carry our message to Texans all across the state.

The program strives to:

  • Raise public awareness.

  • Educate citizens about the source of debris.

  • Generate public support for state, national and international action to clean up coastal waters.

This is a great opportunity for your unit to Adopt-A-Beach. However, it is recommended that during COVID-19, immediate family members only clean beaches, then report your efforts back to your unit.

With safety in mind, it is recommended that immediate family members only go to the beaches. It is not recommended to go as a unit. Please wear face masks, practice social distancing, use gloves, and wash hands regularly. It is also recommended that families go to the beaches on the weekdays, in the early mornings, or in late evenings when there is less traffic on the beaches.
