The Mississippi Coastal Cleanup Program (MSCCP) is calling all volunteers to action. Once a month, the MSCCP will host a beach cleanup at various locations across the coastal counties (Hancock, Harrison and Jackson Counties). Below are the details for the 2020 Monthly Beach Cleanups.
Your participation in the Monthly Cleanups will add your name into a running tally that keeps track of your involvement in the 2020 Monthly Cleanups. The more Monthly Cleanups you participate in, the more entries your name will be on for a higher chance of winning prizes at the Annual Mississippi Coastal Cleanup event in October!

All Monthly Cleanups will begin at 8 AM and end at 9:30 AM.
The Mississippi Coastal Cleanup Program provides all the supplies necessary for the beach cleanup (gloves, trash bags, etc).
BYO: Sun protection (hat, sunscreen, sunglasses), closed toed shoes, a refillable water bottle and bucket.
A member at of the Mississippi Coastal Cleanup Team will be at the location ready to get volunteers signed in and supplied up!
