Marsh Madness - A Decade of Difference Making

BRUNSWICK, GA (April 1, 2024) –  Keep Golden Isles Beautiful’s 2024 March Marsh Madness effort was a huge success thanks to participating volunteers, site leaders, community partners and supporters. In just one month, 36 salt marsh and marsh adjacent cleanups were held, removing 8 TONS of trash and debris, including 64 tires. Together, 460 volunteer opportunities were fulfilled for a combined 743 volunteer hours.

The decade-old month-long effort has amassed impressive stats: 190 March salt marsh and marsh adjacent cleanups have been conducted in the past 10 months of March, removing 59 TONS of trash & debris, including 607 tires (6.5 tire tons), fulfilling 2,959 volunteer opportunities, resulting in 5,353 volunteer hours, for a total volunteer value of $170,225!

Part of Keep America Beautiful’s Great American Cleanup, Marsh Madness is sponsored by Georgia-Pacific Brunswick Cellulose Mill and supported by Glynn County government, the City of Brunswick and the Georgia Department of Transportation.

KGIB thanks all who have volunteered, partnered, funded and otherwise supported this estuarine centric cleanup effort and looks forward to another decade of Marsh Madness Difference Making!
