Volunteers invited to Maumee Bay State Park Beach to keep Great Lakes beaches Barefoot friendly

Barefoot Wine is teaming up with the Alliance for the Great Lakes and UT Lake Erie Center to host a public Adopt-a-Beach™ cleanup at Maumee Bay State Park Beach. Following the cleanup, volunteers ages 21 and older are invited to attend a celebration featuring Barefoot Wine and surf-inspired fare at Maumee Bay State Park Lodge.

The event is part of a partnership between Barefoot Wine and the Alliance’s Adopt-a-Beach™ Program to help clean up Great Lakes beaches and shorelines and offer a special celebration to recognize volunteers’ efforts. In 2011, more than 8,000 Adopt-a-Beach™ volunteers removed 32,668 pounds of trash at 254 locations in Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, New York, Ohio and Wisconsin.

This cleanup is part of a series of events this summer with Barefoot Wine and the Alliance for the Great Lakes. For more info on additional events in your area, visit:
