The International Coastal Cleanup is an annual event organized by the Ocean Conservancy – the Cedar Key community has been participating for over 10 years! Please come out and join us for the cleanup from 8 AM – 12 PM (check-in 7:30 – 9 AM) – volunteers receive a free lunch and t-shirt (while supplies last).
To participate, simply show up and check in at the Cedar Key City Marina as early as 7:30 AM to pick up trash bags and get assigned to an area. Volunteers will be counting items collected as they go using the data sheets provided or using the Clean Swell app. The data sheets must be dropped off along with the trash to earn a t-shirt. Please bring your own gloves!
Nearly 12 million people and counting have been part of the world’s biggest volunteer effort to protect the ocean. Will you join us this year?
Today, plastic has been found in 62% of all sea birds and in 100% of sea turtle species.
