International Coastal Cleanup at Canaveral National Seashore
Saturday, Sept. 16
8am - 11am
On Saturday, September 16, Canaveral National Seashore invites the public to join the International Coastal Cleanup. Once a year all over the world, millions of volunteers, who love the ocean and want to protect it, take this day to really make a difference. Plastic is found in 62% of all sea birds and in 100% of sea turtle species. The park provides important habitat for both, so cleanup efforts at the Seashore are especially importance.
The park's event will be held from 8:00am until 11:00am. Enter the north entrance and meet at the Visitor Center, 7611 S. Atlantic Ave., New Smyrna Beach. The first 100 volunteers to arrive will receive a free tee-shirt. Following the cleanup, lunch will be provided. Bring water in a reusable container and refills will be provided. Also bring gloves and sun protection. On that morning, the park entrance fee will be waived for Cleanup volunteers.
