VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (AP) - A deadline is looming for the annual Clean the Bay Day sponsored by the Chesapeake Bay Foundation.
The annual shoreline litter cleanup is being held Saturday from 9 a.m. to noon. Wednesday is the final day to volunteer.
The foundation is seeking thousands of volunteers on foot and in boats to help tidy up the shoreline of the Chesapeake Bay and its many rivers and streams.
In 2014, more than 6,000 volunteers participated, removing 110,000 pounds of litter and debris along nearly 500 miles of shoreline.
