Volunteers are needed for the 23rd annual St. Johns River Cleanup, which will take place from 8 to 11 a.m. Saturday, April 13, 2019.  

Boaters, scouts, civic organizations, environmental groups, businesses and individual volunteers are encouraged to join in the effort to remove trash and debris from the St. Johns River. 

Participants should bring water and wear sunglasses, a hat, sunscreen, work gloves and comfortable clothing. They may also bring rakes, shovels, trash grabbers, and canoes or boats. 

Volunteers can choose from nine starting points in West Volusia and Seminole County. 

The annual cleanup, coordinated by Volusia County’s Environmental Management Division, draws attention to the river’s environmental importance and helps to keep the waterway safe and clean for animals and people who enjoy swimming and water sports. 

Registration will begin in March. For more information, visit www.volusia.org/cleanup or contact Joan Coil at jcoil@volusia.org. Pre-registered participants will receive a T-shirt.
