Volunteers Needed for Charlotte County Coastal Cleanup Sept. 15th

It’s time again for Charlotte County’s International Coastal Clean Up! Interested individuals and groups are encouraged to participate in this annual event scheduled for Saturday September 15 from 9:00 am to noon. We will meet at Cedar Point Environmental Park in Englewood and clean up local parks which may include Cedar Point Environmental Park, Oyster Creek Environmental Park and/or Buck Creek Preserve. All data goes to the Ocean Conservancy to help determine educational needs. Come help clean up your community. Trash bags and refreshments will be provided. 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.

Charlotte Harbor Environmental Center, Inc. is a non-profit organization serving the Charlotte Harbor area with environmental education, recreation, research and preservation land management. This Coastal Clean-up is sponsored by Keep Charlotte Beautiful and the clean-up locations are a part of the Charlotte County Parks and Natural Resources Department. For additional information and/or to register for the clean-up, please phone (941) 475-0769.
