Online volunteer registration for the cleanup is officially open through Oct. 15, to individuals, families and groups who want to keep the Coast the beautiful, natural wonder that it is.

This year's cleanup will be held on Saturday, Oct.18, from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. Volunteers will be provided with gloves and trash bags to comb cleanup sites in Harrison, Hancock and Jackson Counties as well as the barrier islands for trash and debris.
