Trashy Tuesday on Old Rickenbacker Causeway

Tuesday, February 28, 2017 at 05:00 PM · 14 rsvps

Join us for a sunset beach/pier cleanup. This month we'll start at the old Rickenbacker bridge and make our way down to the beach. This area is heavily used by fishermen and there's often a lot of fishing line around. Let's go get it before it winds up around an animal!! 

Cross the Rickenbacker Causeway and take the first right into the parking lot, near the catemarans. We'll meet there and walk to the Old Rickenbacker pier. 

(It's easy to miss this turn, so keep your eyes peeled!) 

We'll provide: water, sunscreen, buckets for the trash, and gloves

You bring: yourself, a friend, a resuable cup for water, sturdy shoes

See you there!

Dania Waterway and Beach Cleanup. Dania Beach Pier

Saturday, March 04, 2017 at 09:00 AM
Dania Beach Pier in Dania Beach , FL

This is part of the 40th annual Broward Waterway Cleanup.  You can register and print out a waiver at waterwaycleanup.org  

Wear water shoes or sneakers that you can get dirty.  Heavy duty gloves or gardening gloves would come in handy.  Bring a reusable water bottle.  Many of us will be in the mangroves across Whiskey Creek removing the massive amount of trash from the mangroves.  We will have a couple of paddleboards to transport the trash across the creek.  Feel free to bring your own watercraft/kayak.  You may also choose just to clean up the beach side.  

 

High school hours given.

Thank you!
