2nd Annual All-Cape Beach Cleanup

September 28, 2019 from 9:00 am to 11:00 am across Barnstable County

 The All-Cape Beach Cleanup represents a unified action toward the protection of our public lands. The event will take place across the 15 towns that comprise Barnstable County (Cape Cod). 


Our Cleanup is focused on both waste and community building. It is our objective to make environmental protection, preservation, and stewardship part of the perceived responsibility of being a good citizen, neighbor, and visitor.


Sustainable Practices will be sponsoring this year's Cleanup in celebration of National Public Lands Day, which is September 28, and in conjunction with a grant from the National Environmental Education Fund (NEEF). Our event locations will be posted and updated daily starting September 1 on our website and Facebook page. We are also listed on the Coastsweep site and with  NEEF

Join us!

If you would like to join us this year, please send us an email with your name, email, phone number and the town you where you would like to participate!


We look forward to seeing you on September 28!
