Event Details

Coastal Cleanup

in partnership with

Florida Public Archaeology Network and Expedition Florida 500

 

Public lands and estuaries provide benefits that are critical to ecosystem health and the health and well-being of people who recreate on them and live in close proximity to them. Please volunteer to give back to Tampa Bay and the lands of Weedon Island Preserve.

Volunteers will use canoes and kayaks to help clean up the difficult-to-reach shorelines of Weedon Island Preserve.  The cleanup will help to protect wildlife from entanglement and increase the aesthetic value of our natural surroundings.

Each volunteer will sign a Pinellas County Volunteer Form and Canoe waiver.  All participants must be 10 years old or greater. Any participants under 18 years old must be companied by an adult with a ratio of 1 adult: 1 youth.

Participants must wear a closed-toed wading shoe (old tennis shoes, keens, scuba booties).  Sun protection (hat, sunglasses, cover up) is recommended. All participants must abide by the safety policies and recommendations of Pinellas County Staff.

 

Connect with Expedition Florida 500 on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/XF500 . We are pleased to be part of Justin Riney's (Mother Ocean) journey, a yearlong, modern-day exploration of Florida’s coastline, waterways, and aquatic ecosystem as seen through the eyes of the waterman.
