Keeping Our Beach Beautiful...

Beach Clean Up - Sunday, June 23rd @ 8 AM

Everyone Welcome!

Beach Clean Up June

 

The City of Marco Island Beach Advisory Committee is conducting a monthly beach clean-up on Sunday, June 23rd, 2013, 8 AM, at the South Beach boardwalk access.  All public is welcome to participate!

 

Partnering with the Beach Advisory Committee in the beach clean-ups are:
Mutual of Omaha Bank and Marco Island Civic Association (MICA).

 

 

The City of Marco Island's Beach Advisory Committee organizes monthly beach clean-ups in coordination with the Friends of Tigertail Beach to cover the entire year. Committee members have reached out to community groups and businesses to lead a clean-up during this year. These clean-ups augment the routine beach maintenance and remove bags of windblown and abandoned trash on the beach and dunes. Plastic debris is problem, from straws, cup lids, wrappers and bottle caps. We find it all and then remove it from our beautiful beach!

 

The June 23rd beach clean-up community sponsor is Mutual of Omaha Bank. Employees will be walking the beach and picking up trash.  All public is welcome to attend. It's a casual, fun way to spend a Sunday morning on the beach and at the same time improve it! Required volunteer hours can be given to students for participation. 

 

To participate, just arrive by 8 AM on the beachside of the South Beach boardwalk access.  Public parking is available in the Collier County South Beach parking lot on Swallow Avenue. Upon arrival, you will be provided bottled water, bags and gloves. Walk the beach at your own pace picking up trash, going as far and as long as you desire. Remember to wear beach attire, such as, hats, sunglasses, sun screen and comfortable beach shoes.
