Calling all Keepers!
Please see the below for information regarding our annual Day After Beach Clean-Up.
Hope to see you all out there on Friday, July 5th at any of the six participating locations. No pre-registration is required – please pass along to your friends!


Keepers of the Coast, a local non-profit dedicated to promoting coastal stewardship and the conservation of coastal habitat, are recruiting volunteers for the 5th Annual “Day After” Beach Clean-Up on Friday, July 5th. 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 will be held the afternoon of Friday, July 5th, from 5:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m. at six different beach access points throughout St. Johns County:  Vilano Beach Access Ramp, A-Street Beach Access Ramp, St. Augustine Pier, Mickler’s Beachfront Park in Ponte Vedra and Crescent Beachfront Park.

This clean-up will be the second in the Summer Daze Beach Clean-Up Series. The final clean-up will take place at the Jacksonville Beach Pier on August 2nd. More details about these clean-ups can be found on www.keepersofthecoast.org.

Volcom will award the volunteer with the most trash collected a Volcom Prize Pack at each access point. Continue to keep the right butts on the beach by winning the cigarette butt challenge at the 5th Annual July 5th Beach Cleanup. The volunteer to collect the most cigarette butts will win a pair of Electric Sunglasses. No pre-registration is required and volunteers may show up at any of the locations.  All participants will be given a bag for trash, a bag for recycling, and a bag for cigarette butts.

Keepers of the Coast are proud to announce that Volcom, Electric, SweetWater Brewing Company, Scenic A1A and Chirp & Chirp have committed to adopting clean-up sites.
