Marine debris injures and kills marine life, interferes with navigation safety, and poses a threat to human health. Our oceans and waterways are polluted with all kinds of marine debris ranging from plastic bags to fishing gear.
By working with our members and partners we hope to reduce the amount of trash in our waterways and make sure we are leaving future generations something to make them proud.
Making a Difference
Cleanup site locations are chosen by CCA leaders that have identified areas in their region in need of attention. With hopes that families, friends, and neighbors will join our efforts to renew some of our favorite places in Maryland, CCA Maryland is committed to bringing awareness to our up-stream issues and working to make a change.

Partnerships Bringing Big Changes
Our cleanups are in partnership with Costa's Kick Plastic Campaign #kickplastic. With sponsors like Sweetwater Brewing Company and Costa's Kick Plastic Campaign, Coastal Conservation Association Maryland has joined in this national movement to rethink single-use plastics and the effect they have on our oceans. With donations from Costa Del Mar and Sweetwater Brewing Company, we have had some pretty sweet give-a-ways. And Sweetwater Brewing Company's Kick Plastic Pilsner is always a treat to our (21 and over) volunteers at the event after-party! What a great way to celebrate bringing awareness to such an important cause.
