Palm Coast - Registration is now open to participate in the 13th Annual Intracoastal Waterway Cleanup. The event draws 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.
Those interested must pre-register at palmcoastconnect.com, see Virtual Rec Programs tab and click special events or visit https://fullsite.palmcoastgov.com/events/intracoastal-cleanup. Volunteers will receive a t-shirt, trash bags, gloves, mask and safety sheet. The deadline for online registration is Sept. 4. There will be no registration the day of the event due to COVID-19 and the need to maintain social distancing and minimize gatherings.
The event will be held Sept. 12 from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. This year, volunteers will clean up at their own pace and submit pictures of trash they collect through their registration link where it will be judged virtually. There will be a form on the city website that populates on the day of the event for pounds of trash collected and most unique find, as this year those are the two prizes. Trash can be placed in dumpsters at select city parks and under the toll bridge. There will not be a reception at the community center like years past. Instead, volunteers will be notified after the event of the results of everything collected.
The event is family-friendly and allows volunteers and local youth organizations to make an impact on our community by preserving and protecting the environment.
Students and youth organizations such as boy/girl scouts can get community service hours for volunteering. Forms must be signed by an event organizer. The troop leader or supervisor can reach out to event staff members Jordan Myers or Denise Bevan.
This year's event mascot is Sir Otterton the otter, named by city employees in a recent contest. Past years have had different mascots of animals found in nature such as a dolphin, turtle and manatee.
Supply pickup will be contactless at the Palm Coast Community Center, located at 305 Palm Coast Parkway NE, on Sept. 8, 9, and 11 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Please call when in the parking lot at 386-986-2323.
Since the city's inaugural event in 2008, volunteers have collected more than 20,000 pounds of trash - each year averages about 2,000 pounds. The event is supported by a $5,000 Florida Inland Navigation District (FIND) grant award.
