Local group to clean litter from Laguna Madre

SOUTH PADRE ISLAND — Local volunteers are banding together to tackle litter in the Laguna Madre as part of the Keep Texas Waterways Clean program.

The cleanup is scheduled for Saturday, September 24.

“Keep South Padre Island Beautiful is committed to keeping the Lower Laguna Madre Bay clean so we can protect and restore it for us – and future generations. Participating in a bay cleanup is one way that community members can do their part for the waters we all love and have a fun time outdoors with friends and family,” said KSPIB chairwoman Susan Dalton.

The group is expected 250 volunteers to be on hand
