LPBF’s 28th Annual Beach SweepDate: September 16, 2017

Lake Pontchartrain Basin Foundation will hold its 28th annual Beach Sweep presented by Toyota, a day designated to clean up around the Lake Pontchartrain Basin, on Saturday, September 16, 2017.
LPBF’s Beach Sweep is held in conjunction with the International Coastal Cleanup sponsored by Ocean Conservancy. Volunteers, partners, and sponsors help care for the areas that drain the Pontchartrain Basin by cleaning curbs, ditches, and storm drains on city streets and rural roadways. As an added activity, storm drain markers will be placed on drains in Orleans and Jefferson parishes. This second project will help prevent our metro area from flooding and at the same time protect Lake Pontchartrain. Designated areas for cleanup around the lake included Orleans, Jefferson, St. Charles, St. Tammany, and East Baton Rouge parishes. LPBF’s 28th annual Beach Sweep is sponsored by Toyota.
