Clarington Island Lost City Cleanup

Rescheduled from May 19. since there is only the possibility of storms the cleanup will go on as planned.  The usual lunch will be served. 

Recovery is still ongoing as more Irma debris remain and has been joined by new debris.  Let's get as much of this debris before another storm hits us.  This is the last cleanup before summer hiatus (vacation). Plans for restoring the dock ramp are underway.  Some agility is still needed. 

Clarington Island Cleanups are hosted by Coconut Grove Sailing Club and our community partners including Coconut Grove Chamber of Commerce; Biscayne Bay Foundation; the Rotary Clubs of Coconut Grove and Brickell; City of Miami; Commissioner Ken Russell's Office, Woman's Club of Coconut Grove and Sharp Dentistry. Past cleanups are on the Facebook group:  CGSC Clarington Island.
