International Coastal Cleanup Day
Part of what makes St. Augustine such an amazing town to live in is the people that live here and the beautiful piece of paradise we all get to call home! ? To do our part in keeping our unique part of the world clean and healthy, join in on the local tradition of “International Coastal Cleanup Day,” where we get the opportunity to give back to our great area. ?
As part of a global initiative to increase awareness about the importance of keeping our shores clean of trash, this cleanup is THE most significant, single-day volunteer effort to remove debris from our beaches, waterways, lakes, rivers, and parks. In 2021, more than 10,000 volunteers across Florida alone picked up more than 91,000 pounds of trash!! That’s an insane amount of trash now off our beaches and out of our waters.
With so many animals accidentally eating trash and getting tangled up, we must give back to our local environment and help ensure our local species have a safe home too! ?
So come on Saturday, September 17, from 8:00 to 11:00 a.m. to help give back to our charming town by beautifying some of our favorite places to relax and enjoy weekend activities.
Friends of A1A Scenic & Historic Coastal Byway have organized team leaders in St. Johns and Flagler Counties to help with cleanup logistics at many local beaches along A1A, and everyone is invited to participate!
