Thank you to all you Keepers for coming out and making a difference!
Keepers of the Coast, a local non-profit dedicated to promoting coastal stewardship and the conservation of coastal habitat. The purpose of the cleanup is to restore the coastline following the impacts from July 4th, traditionally one of the busiest beach traffic days of the year. This community-wide effort was held the morning of Saturday, July 5th, at six different beach access points throughout St. Johns County: Mickler’s beach front park in Ponte Vedra, Vilano Beach Access Ramp, A-Street Beach Access Ramp, St. Augustine Pier, and we had some very special guest at the Butler beach front park…argh…Pirates!
VOLCOM awarded the first 50 volunteers with sweet highwear sunglasses. The winner of the cigarette butt contest was awarded with a free swimsuit made from recycled plastic bottles.
This clean-up was the third in the Summer Daze Beach Clean-Up Series sponsored by VOLCOM. The final clean-up will take place at the Jacksonville Beach Pier on August 2nd. More details about these clean-ups can be found by visiting Facebook or keep looking through our website.
Continue to keep the right butts on the beach by doing your own beach cleanup!
