The Mississippi Coastal Cleanup Program (MSCCP) is calling all volunteers to action. Once a month, the MSCCP will host a beach cleanup at a location within one of the coastal counties (Hancock, Harrison and Jackson Counties). Below are the details for the 2021 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 2021 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!

The Mississippi Coastal Cleanup Program provides all the supplies necessary for the beach cleanup (gloves, trash bags, etc).
