DO YOUR PART TO KEEP OUR BEACHES CLEAN… BE A STEWARD OF YOUR LOCAL COASTAL COMMUNITY!
The St. Petersburg Chapter of SCUBAnauts International is hosting a coastal cleanup and native plant restoration for youth (ages 10-17) and their families at Clam Bayou on November 12th, 2011 from 8:30 a.m. – noon in St. Petersburg, Florida. In addition to the cleanup and plant restoration, the event will include presentations and hands-on activities led local marine scientists from the University of South Florida. Join us and learn more about your local marine and coastal environments, the effects of marine debris, and what you can do to help. All volunteers will be provided with cleanup supplies and will receive a free stainless steel water bottle. To register and obtain more information including directions to the education center, please email Ben Prueitt (firstname.lastname@example.org).
We are asking that all participants please register and complete a brief survey on marine debris. The links to the surveys are below:
