Our friends Joe, John and Marty from Aurelio's Pizza stopped by 12th Street Beach to help keep our waterways safe and clean. Twenty Shedd Aquarium employees and several volunteers from St. Paul's youth Group collected 101 pounds of garbage and properly disposed of 41 pounds of recyclables. Plus, we picked up 200 cigarette butts which are dangerous for birds and young beach goers.
A special appearance from Pizza Man was an extra surprise for the Great Lakes conservation team and our hardworking volunteers! Though Pizza Man did not do much in the way of cleaning he certainly helped keep our energy levels high with lots of delicious Aurelio's pizza!
