Thursday, September 6th, 2012 at 8:13 am

A group who’s goal is to keep the Great Lakes clean is looking for volunteers to help clean beaches later this month.

The Alliance for the Great Lakes is holding its annual Adopt-a-Beach event Saturday, Sept. 15. The group is asking individuals, community groups and school groups to show up at Great Lakes beaches and help pick up trash.

Last year more than 15,000 pounds of garbage was picked up by thousands of volunteers who showed up.

This year’s Adopt-a-Beach event will take place at beaches in Illinois, Indiana, Michigan and Wisconsin.
