Mid-Summer Coastal Cleanup at Fort De Soto Park
TIERRA VERDE - Tampa Bay Watch in partnership with Keep Pinellas Beautiful plans their annual mid-summer coastal cleanup of Fort De Soto Park on Saturday, July 12, 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.
A land and sea based cleanup will be deployed to clean up the park after the fourth of July holiday weekend. Kayakers are welcome to participate in the water based cleanup. This is a great opportunity to give back to an area that the community loves and enjoys.
Since 2001, more than 20,000 pounds of debris have been collected, including items like Styrofoam cups, construction debris, car batteries and countless cigarette butts, party balloons and plastic bags.
Volunteers will meet at the main entrance of the Fort De Soto Boat Ramp on Saturday morning and are encouraged to wear closed toe shoes, hat, garden gloves, sunscreen, bug spray and to bring water. Trash bags, latex gloves, sunscreen and water will be provided for the project volunteers. Reservations are required; please contact email@example.com to sign up yourself or your group and let us know if you will be bringing your kayak or canoe.
