Unlike a typical litter removal event, this annual event offers the opportunity for volunteers to engage in vital international research activities by taking on the role of “Scientist for a Day.” With a specific focus on water-based natural resource protection and activism, volunteers collect items and record the data to identify the number and types of littered items found. This information is used to determine future requirements for cleanup initiatives, and develop awareness of these needs within the local communities who share these waterways. Collected data is shared with Keep America Beautiful and the Ocean Conservancy, as well as local officials to help provide a local and global perspective.
