The Loggerhead Marinelife Center announced recently that they will continue their partnership with the Palm Beach fashion icon and line, Lilly Pulitzer for their weekly Beach Clean-Ups on Juno Beach. The year-round sponsorship will include hosting specialty events throughout Palm Beach County Lilly Pulitzer retail stores and highlight two local and late pioneering women Lilly Pulitzer and Loggerhead Marinelife Center’s Eleanor Fletcher.
Every Saturday morning, the Loggerhead Marinelife Center hosts its weekly Beach Cleanup along the beach near the center. The weekly beach cleanups provide a fun opportunity for locals to help keep our beautiful beaches and towns clean of debris and litter. The cleanups are important now more than ever. Beginning in March through the end of October, thousands of sea turtle lay their nests along the beach in Juno Beach and Jupiter. The area is the most populated sea turtle nesting location in the world, and it is important to help keep our beaches clean for the sea turtles.
The Clean Up begins at 8:30 am and volunteers are asked to meet at the back gate of the Loggerhead Marinelife Center, by the east parking lot, to pick up the beach clean up supplies. Once supplies are picked up, volunteers can make their way down to the beach to begin. Once the bucket of trash is full, bring the bucket back to the east gate when finished so others can help too. Buckets and supplies will be available until 11:30 am every Saturday morning. The Beach Clean Up is free and registration is not required to participate.
