The Texas Adopt-A-Beach Program is an all-volunteer effort dedicated to preserving and protecting Texas Beaches.

Since the program began back in 1986, there have been more than 523,000 volunteers remove more than 9,590 tons of trash from Texas beaches. By becoming an official Beach Guardian in the Texas Adopt-A-Beach program, you will join a network of concerned Texans dedicated to keeping our coast clean, safe and beautiful.

The program strives to:

  • raise public awareness;
  • educate citizens about the source of debris; and
  • generate public support for state, national and international action to clean up coastal waters.

The Texas Adopt-A-Beach program, an all-volunteer effort, is dedicated to preserving and protecting Texas beaches. The program's success is due to the generous efforts of dedicated volunteer county coordinators, coastal community leaders, sponsors and citizens. Strong support from the private sector helps carry our message to Texans all across the state.

Do your part to keep Texas beaches beautiful!

The Texas Adopt-A-Beach program is managed by the Texas General Land Office.
