Duluth, MN (KDAL) - For the first time in 16 years the Great Lakes Aquarium will not oversee annual beach cleanup efforts. This year the Duluth attraction has invited the Alliance for the Great Lakes to take over the event.  The alliance's Jamie Cross says new for this year are their Adopt-a-Beach Events, which will be held Saturday.  Duluth Mayor Don Ness says the city and its residents (quote) “…understand the value of Lake Superior (and) this event is a great way for the community to play a role in caring for it.” (end quote) 16 events will be held around the Northland with volunteers picking up trash and recording what they find.  The alliance operates the Adopt-a-Beach program on all five Great Lakes.
