Volunteers are needed for the 24th annual St. Johns River Cleanup, which will take place from 8 to 11 a.m. Saturday, May 2. 

The goal is to clean 59 miles of waterway and river basin on land and in the water with the help of boaters and other volunteers.

“This is a great opportunity to get your group involved in a community project,” said cleanup coordinator Sondra McCulloch. “We encourage scouts, schools and social groups to participate. All ages are welcome to join in the fun.”

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:

  • Nine Mile Point Park, at the west end of Nine Mile Point Road, Pierson
  • Shell Harbor Park, 1800 Shell Harbor Road, Pierson
  • DeLeon Springs State Park, 601 Burst Park Road, DeLeon Springs
  • Ed Stone Park, 2990 W. State Road 44, DeLand
  • Lake Beresford Park, 2100 Fatio Road, DeLand
  • French Avenue boat launch / Starks Landing, Orange City
  • Lake Monroe Park, 975 S. U.S. 17-92, DeBary
  • Lemon Bluff boat ramp, 907 Lemon Bluff Road, Osteen
  • C.S. Lee Park, 4600 East State Road 46, Geneva (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.
