Coastal beaches and state parks clean-up projects scheduled this month

As anglers we all know about good outdoors stewardship, and taking care of the places where we enjoy our time on the water.

With that said it might be time to give back a little as Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission is putting out a call for volunteers to participate on April 23 in the Washington Coast Cleanup Day.

In addition, state park rangers at more than a dozen parks need volunteers to help with Community Partnership Month cleanup events throughout April, to get ready for the spring and summer camping season.

All of these events are in conjunction with Earth Day. Last year, about 1,000 volunteers removed more than 16 tons of marine debris from coastal beaches.

To learn more visit the Coast Savers website.
