Nauticus will host a socially-distanced virtual community clean up on April 3, 2021 in celebration of its traveling exhibition by National Geographic, Planet or Plastic?. “This river is a community treasure and also our responsibility,” said Stephen E. Kirkland, Nauticus’ executive director. “We’re challenging the 757 to come together and make a real difference on April 3rd, but our ultimate goal is to prioritize environmental stewardship every single day of the year.”

Help beautify the Hampton Roads community and stop trash and waste from depositing in our ocean by cleaning up your local neighborhood, park or beach. All participants will receive a discounted admission rate of $7.57 (plus tax) to Nauticus and the Battleship Wisconsin on April 3 or 4.
