Founded in 1994, Friends of Jupiter Beach is a 501(c)(3) community organization whose goal is to support and maintain environmentally healthy, clean, and dog-friendly beaches in Jupiter, Florida. Friends of Jupiter Beach is a grassroots, volunteer-driven, not-for-profit group devoted to keeping a distinct section of Jupiter Beach clean and dog-friendly in northern Palm Beach County.
The organization is able to is maintain the group through volunteerism, advocacy, and education. Volunteers and supporters from all corners of the Town of Jupiter and Juno Beach step up, clean, and freshen up the 2.5-mile span of beach beginning from just north of the Juno Beach Pier north to Carlin Park. Each month the volunteers gather and remove debris from the beach. The organization began weighing the trash in 2006 and have collected more than 75,000 pounds of trash and recyclables off the beach.
Unfortunately, the coronavirus has impacted the event and the event has been cancelled. Depending on how this pandemic pans out, the event may be rescheduled for October 17, 2020. Friends of Jupiter Beach has always relied solely on sponsorship and donation. In lieu of the cancellation of the food and wine festival, donations are always welcome.
