GULF BREEZE, Fla. (WALA) - Gulf Islands National Seashore Superintendent Dan Brown announced the upcoming annual International Coastal Cleanup scheduled for Saturday, September 21, from 8:00 a.m. to noon.
Coordinated by the Ocean Conservancy, the International Coastal Cleanup is a major worldwide event.
“Our goal isn’t just to clean the beaches, it is also to educate people about keeping the beaches clean in the first place,” said Superintendent Brown. “Some pieces of debris can outlive the oldest fish in the sea.”
Coastal Cleanup locations at the seashore include:
- Santa Rosa Area – Meet at Opal Beach, Gulf side.
- Perdido Key Area - Meet at Johnson Beach picnic area by the bulletin board located .5 miles east of State Road 292.
- Fort Pickens Area – Meet at Langdon Beach, Gulf side.
Entrance fees will be waived for volunteers assisting with the coastal cleanup.
Coastal cleanup volunteers are advised to wear closed-toe shoes, gloves, sunscreen and hats and to bring water to stay hydrated. Families, individuals, businesses, and community groups can choose their favorite location to register, receive trash bags, data cards and information.
