Sign up now for March 18th Sister Keys Cleanup

SBW logo

Sarasota Bay Watch has been cleaning up Sarasota Bay Watch’s “adopted islands” the Sister Keys since 2009 and invite you to join us in helping to maintain the natural diversity of this beautiful space.

The waters that surround the keys are filled with shallow sea grass beds, one of the most important and productive habitats in Sarasota Bay. These areas are a nursery for many fish including snook, redfish, sea trout and flounder. They provide a home, protection and a food source for countless other species like shrimp, crabs, oysters, scallops and even manatees.

We are seeking volunteers to help with the cleanup as well as captains to transport volunteers to and from the Sister Keys. You may also bring your own kayak and transport yourself! Complimentary lunch will be provided after the cleanup around 11:30 a.m. at the Mar Vista Dockside Restaurant*. We have space at the restaurant until 12 p.m.

* Limited to the first 40 signups - Use the link below to register today!
