International Coastal Cleanup Sites in Palm Beach County

Posted by Lacey Hagler on Friday, September 14th, 2018 at 1:20pm.

From Jupiter Boca Raton, Palm Beach County is taking part in the International Coastal Cleanup the weekend of September 15th, and additional volunteers are welcome to join!

Ocean trash is a serious pollution problem that affects the health of people, wildlife, and local economies. Trash in the water can not only injure beachgoers or divers and ensnare boat propellors, but it can kill precious marine life.

In order to help, Ocean Conservancy has started a worldwide clean-up where hundreds of thousands of volunteers comb lakes, rivers and beaches around the world for trash. For over 30 years, more than 12 million volunteers have collected over 220 million pounds of trash.

In true Palm Beach County fashion, clean-ups are taking place all along our beautiful coastline. Here are the details for each volunteer opportunity:
