Be a "Blue Friend" and Help Clean the Beach

Posted by Amanda Hicks on Thursday, February 15th, 2018 at 3:49pm.

 

Once a month the "Blue Friends" of Loggerhead Marinelife Center get together to have breakfast and clean our beaches.

All you have to do to be a Blue Friend is join the monthly clean-ups! Help keep our local beaches clear and beautiful and safe for sea turtles. Jupiter and Juno beaches are vital nesting spots especially for the endangered Loggerhead Sea Turtle. Last season, the Center documented more than 11,000 Loggerhead nests. 

The Blue Friends meet at the Loggerhead Marinelife Center in Juno Beach at 8:30 a.m., but don't worry about it being early, you'll have delicious coffee from Oceana Coffee Roasters in Tequesta to wake you up! After walking the beach and picking up litter for about an hour, the group heads back over to the Center to enjoy a healthy light breakfast compliments of Whole Foods Market in Palm Beach Gardens.

This is a great way to give back to the community and to actively preserve endangered turtle species. Plus it's fun to stroll the beach at sunrise and socialize with others concerned about the environment! 

The next clean-up is this Saturday, February 17th. Bring buckets and gloves if you have them. Please RSVP to Lynne at bluefriends@marinelife.org.

The Loggerhead Marinelife Center is located at 14200 Erikson Way, Juno Beach, FL 33408.
