Trashy Tuesday on Old Rickenbacker Causeway

Tuesday, February 28, 2017 at 05:00 PM · 9 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!

 

(*The address listed is actually a little past where the meetup will be.)
