With fall just around the corner, it's time for the whirlwind of shoreline tidying known as the International Coastal Cleanup.

Now in its 27th year, the volunteer effort sponsored by the Ocean Conservancy involves nearly 5,400 different cleanups around the world, including 10 right here in the Baltimore area, from Lake Roland to Fort McHenry and Fort Smallwood.

Many are set for Saturday, Sept. 15, but if it's too late to get in on those others are planned over the next few weeks.
