Last year we had 487 volunteers join in the effort to remove trash and debris from the St. Johns River. This year we are hoping to have an even larger participation. We need volunteers on both land and in the water. Our goal is to clean 59 miles of waterway and river basin of the St. Johns River. We plan to accomplish this both on land and in the water with the help of those in the boating community and other volunteers. This is a great opportunity to get your group involved in a community project. Scouts, schools, and other social groups are encouraged to participate. All ages are welcome to join in the fun. There will be free waterway cleanup mementos to all that attend.
The following locations are available this year:
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. Here is a map of the 9 locations.
