Each year, community members and organizations like Keep Pinellas Beautiful, work with local governments to identify areas that are inundated with marine debris. The Great American Cleanup is a national campaign through which volunteers remove debris from our creeks, watersheds and oceans.

Won’t you join us for this Waterway and Mangrove island cleanup in Pinellas Park? You can bring your own canoe/kayak or borrow a canoe from us (assigned morning of event, first come first serve). We'll provide all the cleanup materials you'll need.

Please Note, this is an 18+ event.

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

Registration is REQUIRED. Space is limited. If you register, please plan to attend or email if you need to cancel.

About the organizer

Pinellas County is a watershed!

A watershed carries water "shed" from the land after rainfall. Drop by drop, water is channeled into soils, creeks, and streams, making its way to Tampa Bay or the Gulf of Mexico.

Every bit of land drains to water and everything we do on land has an impact on our water quality! Common items like dirt, grass clippings, yard debris, pet waste, and fertilizer become pollution in our waters.
