2014 Ohio Coastweeks Event Form

What is Ohio's Coastweeks?

It is part of a national celebration of the nation's waters and shorelines held in the 50 states. Ohio's program focuses on the theme, "I Can Help Lake Erie" to encourage people to be part of the solution, not the pollution that finds its way into the lake. The debris collected at Ohio's cleanups and throughout the world is recorded on data cards and submitted to the Ocean Conservancy. Ohio is proud of be part of the International Coastal Cleanup program.

Cleanups are perhaps the most beneficial and educational component of Coastweeks with its hands-on impact which helps to increase public awareness in the protection of Lake Erie’s ecosystem. In addition, Coastweeks projects provide an excellent opportunity for community service for local groups.


During the 2013 Coastweeks cleanup, 1,344 volunteers combed 65 combined miles of beaches, streams and tributaries, hauling in 19,021 pounds of trash= 1,223 bags of trash filled!  Their efforts provided beautifully cleaned areas for visitors to enjoy swimming, fishing and relaxation.
