The beach cleaning is part of the Restoration and Education project sponsored by FedEx and the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation.
The volunteers, who are being led by the Alliance for the Great Lakes, will also record data about the beach's health for future improvement events, according to a news release.
FedEx and the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation have provided a $22,000 grant for the Restoration and Education project. FedEx has helped support the Alliance for the Great Lakes for three years.
