Five hundred volunteers came together as teams to help cleanup Ozaukee County beaches as part of a national clean-up day.
The teams consisted of school groups, businesses, faith-based organizations and even a bachelor party.
"It was a great way for everyone in the community to join our Ozaukee Green Team and volunteer in our community," a press release from the Volunteer Center of Ozaukee County said. "We would like to thank all of the wonderful volunteers who made the Adopt-A-Beach a success."
The Volunteer Center coordinated efforts with Alliance for the Great Lakes as part of the cleanup, and also held a party for volunteers after at New Port Shores.
"Thanks to Newport Shores and Barefoot Winery for sponsoring the volunteer after party," the release said.
