Event description

Description

Each year 80% of the debris entering our waterways is introduced from inland areas (streets, storm-drains, lakes, ponds, etc.) through our watersheds and into the global waterway, our oceans. In addition to consumer-based debris, our watersheds can transport excess nutrients which can have a detrimental impact on the health of downstream ecosystems. To combat this issue Keep Pinellas Beautiful partners with volunteers, organizations, and community groups throughout Pinellas County to host cleanups and beautification initiatives in an effort to help to raise awareness in the community and remove harmful debris from entering into our waterways.

Please join Keep Pinellas Beautiful and the Friends of Crescent Lake for a rewarding day of community improvement, engagement, and beautification.

Location: We'll be gathering at the lake. New meeting place for our monthly cleanups: TASCO Building parking lot by Huggins-Stengel Field, 1320 5 St. N.

Remember: Bring old close toed shoes to wear, some water and sunscreen. We will provide waders, water and snacks.

**Please note: Volunteers can assist with both litter and invasive species removal and there is no need to print a "ticket" to attend..**
