Coastal Cleanup Sept. 17th at Cedar Point Environmental Park

It’s time again for the International Coastal Clean Up! Interested individuals and groups are encouraged to participate in this annual event scheduled for Saturday, September 17 at 9:00 AM at Cedar Point Environmental Park, 2300 Placida Road in Englewood.

This is Adopt-A-Shore’s major cleanup of the year with all data going to The Center for Marine Conservation in St. Petersburg. Over the years, data from the cleanup has been used to enact local, state and national legislation.

Come help clean up your community. Bags, gloves and data sheets will be provided as well as light refreshments. Fist 20 to register will receive a free T-shirt compliments of Keep Charlotte Beautiful. Just bring a commitment to help. And remember, do your part every day by picking up trash that you see, not just during special clean ups.

This Clean-up effort is organized by the Charlotte Harbor Environmental Center with cooperation with the Charlotte County Parks & Natural Resources. Cedar Point Park is a Charlotte County facility located at 2300 Placida Road in Englewood. To register or for further information, call (941) 475-0769.
