On September 21st, 2013, hundreds of thousands of volunteers worldwide will participate in the Ocean Conservancy’s International Coastal Cleanup, the world’s largest volunteer event of its kind. Last year almost 600,000 volunteers from 114 countries and every state cleaned over 9 million pounds of trash from oceans and waterways and recorded every piece of trash collected. Come help this worthwhile effort. Register at www.signuptocleanup.org starting in August.
Fifty thousand dollars is at stake in the Maryland Fishing Challenge.
Catch a Maryland fish, and you may also catch some of the money.
The big bucks — $25,000 — are riding on Diamond Jim. Jim’s a rockfish whose identity changes throughout summer. Each month, Maryland Department of Natural Resources fishers catch, tag and release one genuine Jim plus hundreds of imposters.
