Clarington Island Cleanup
Clarington Island Friends invites you to continue in the mission to reduce marine debris in Biscayne Bay. Friends include Woman’s Club of Coconut Grove, City of Miami, and Titanic Brewery.
We will provide garbage bags, data collection cards, sunscreen, and insect repellant. Community Service hours are also provided. Check out past cleanups on Facebook at CGSC Clarington Island Cleanup. Refreshments including beer from the Titanic Brewery will be served after the cleanup.
