National Estuaries Day & National Public Lands Day
Give Back with Florida Sea Grant Paddling Coastal Clean Up!
Be a part of the nation’s largest single-day volunteer event for public lands! 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.
UF/IFAS Extension Florida Sea Grant Agent Libby Carnahan will lead volunteers with 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.
