Self-Guided Beach Cleanups: Saturday mornings from 8:30 am to 11:30 am

The Self-Guided Beach Cleanup Program was introduced in 2020 as a new program that has been added to the calendar weekly. Volunteers who wish to participate are asked to stop by Marine Debris Sorting Station on the back deck of the Loggerhead Marinelife Center in Juno Beach to pick up their cleanup supplies. Once supplies picked up, volunteers can make their way down to the beach to start the cleanup. When finished, bring the bag of debris back to the Sorting Station and pick up a free t-shirt as a Thank You gift for helping clean up the beach.
