Beach Clean-Up with Drink Local Drink Tap

Volunteers will work to beautify Perkins Beach and Edgewater Beach by picking up litter and trash. Please see the schedule and Special Driving Instructions below for the location of the clean-ups.

The goal of Drink Local. Drink Tap., Inc. is to creatively reconnect people to our local water. Removing the manufactured demand of plastic bottled water, reconnecting people to Lake Erie in water-safe ways though eco-friendly lakefront activities and helping advocate for partnerships that protect our shared water resources provide a comprehensive and focused path to reaching the group’s goals and objectives.
