Mid-summer cleanup is Saturday, July 8

Calling all volunteers for a mid-summer cleanup on July 8! The most help for the cleanup is needed at the Skyway fishing piers. Other sites include Fort De Soto Park, Tampa Bay Watch, Weedon Island Preserve, kayak/canoes only at Coffee Pot Bayou, Palonis Park in Tampa and Leffis Key and Coquina Beach in Manatee County. This event is an effort to clean up after the Fourth of July holiday weekend.

This event is in partnership with Keep Pinellas Beautiful, Keep Tampa Bay Beautiful, and Manatee County Department of Parks and Natural Resources.
