Intracoastal Waterway Cleanup
September 8, 2018 7:30 AM - 2:00 PM
Palm Coast is hosting an Intracoastal Waterway Cleanup event. Equipped with a $5,000 Florida Inland Navigation District (FIND) grant award, City staff will be asking local volunteers to protect and enjoy nature by removing trash within their developments or along City paths, walkways and waterways. Boaters can work in saltwater canals and Intracoastal waters and walkers can clear the paths and trails alongside the waterway.
Since City's inaugural event in 2008, the event has been a great success; our volunteers have collected over 10.2 tons of trash from the environment.
In recognition of our wonderful mascot, Walter Waterways, we are proud to announce the partnership with the Sea Turtle Hospital at Whitney! On event day, experts from the Hospital will be present to teach about their efforts to rehab, research and educate about these amazing creatures. We hope you can join us and learn about their amazing efforts. To learn how you can provide direct support and get involved, please visit their webpage.
Remember our mascots? 2013 - Captain Hu-Manatee, 2014 - Pinch de Leon, and 2015 – Scoop, and 2016 - Digger!
This year's adventure begins at Holland Park for package pick-up and event-day registration at 8:00 am on November 4, 2017. Volunteers registered by August 19th are guaranteed a t-shirt, water bottle, trash bags, gloves, safety sheet, and clean-up result form. Registration is open until November 2nd and also welcomed on on event day; however, all supplies cannot be guaranteed. On event day, Volunteers will be invited back to the Holland Park at 12:00 pm to enjoy City-provided snacks and beverages with a special award's ceremony for most unique FIND and most collected garbage.
