Boca Chica Beach - Rio Grande River Cleanup

 

This is a cleanup of Boca Chica Beach at the mouth of the Rio Grande River. This area has a lot of trash. We have coordinated this event with County Commissioner Sophia Benavides' office in order to have county support and trash pickup. Please come out and volunteer to make a difference.

Numerous local elected and appointed officials have been invited and a few have already said they will be present.

The USFWS will be participating in this event.  SpaceX and other local businesses have also indicated interest in having some employees participate.
