Jupiter is home to one of the very few remaining dog- friendly beaches in the state and the only one in Palm Beach County.

The Jupiter Town Council adopted the policy to allow dogs on the beach back in 1989. Since then, the dog- friendly beach areas have been expanded to a 2.5 mile stretch of the beach starting at beach marker #25 at Marcinski Road to beach marker #59 at the south end of Carlin Park.

Dogs are free to roam in the designated section of the beach and enjoy the sand and water. Parking is also free, with a parking lot located on Marcinski Road as well as parking along A1A. Dogs are allowed on the beach from sunrise to sunset.

Dogs must be supervised at all times or on a leash while on the beach. Being able to bring your dog on the beach

Sunset Beach Yoga will happen this Sunday on Delray Beach from 4:00pm – 5:30pm. The session will be guided (but also open to self-practice) and will last about 80 minutes. Several techniques will be practiced including Hatha, Vinyasa, Yin Asana and Pranayama practice, and the session will finish in a Savasana (meditation- laying down.)

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
