Keepers of the Coast, a local non-profit dedicated to promoting coastal stewardship and the conservation of coastal habitat, are recruiting volunteers for the 5th Annual “Day After” Beach Clean-Up on Friday, July 5th.
The purpose of the cleanup is to restore the coastline following the impacts from July 4th, traditionally one of the busiest beach traffic days of the year.
This community-wide effort will be held the afternoon of Friday, July 5th, from 5:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m. at six different beach access points throughout St. Johns County:
• Vilano Beach Access Ramp
• A-Street Beach Access Ramp
• St. Augustine Pier
• Mickler’s Beachfront Park in Ponte Vedra
• Crescent Beachfront Park
This clean-up will be the second in the Summer Daze Beach Clean-Up Series. The final clean-up will take place at the Jacksonville Beach Pier on August 2nd. More details about these clean-ups can be found on www.keepersofthecoast.org.
No pre-registration is required and volunteers may show up at any of the locations. All participants will be given a bag for trash, a bag for recycling, and a bag for cigarette butts.
