Intracoastal Waterway Cleanup
September 10, 2016 8:00 AM
Volunteers! Our 2016 event headquarters will be at Palm Coast Community Center again this year!
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 8.7 tons of trash from the environment.
Remember our mascots? 2013 - Captain Hu-Manatee, 2014 - Pinch de Leon, and 2015 - Scoop.
This year's adventure begins at Palm Coast Community Center for pre-registration package pick-up at 8:00 am. Volunteers registered by August 20th may pick up their packages early at the Palm Coast City Hall Community Wing on September 3rd 9:00 am - 11:00 am; an orientation will begin at 9:00 am. Your package will include a t-shirt, water bottle, trash bags, gloves, safety sheet, and clean-up result form. Registration on event day is welcome; however, supplies cannot be guaranteed. On event day, Volunteers will be invited back to the Community Center 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.
