Volunteers Sought for Sister Keys Cleanup May 7th

Sarasota Bay Watch, in cooperation with the Town of Longboat Key and the Chiles Group, is seeking volunteers for the 3rd Annual Sister Keys Clean-Up to be held on Saturday, May 7, 2011 from 8:00am until 12:30pm.

The "Clean-Up Crew" will gather next to the Town of Longboat Key boat ramp at the corner of Linley Street and Lois Avenue at the Mar Vista to be transported by boat to Sister Keys beginning at 8:30am. After the cleanup, participants (only) will be treated to lunch (from 11:30-12:30) courtesy of the Mar Vista Dockside Restaurant. Please dress casually (long sleeve shirts, pants, eye protection and gloves) and wear appropriate shows to protect your feet. Don't forget sunblock as we expect the sun will shine on this important event.
