    SOS Ocean Conservation Day

    Save the Date. Save the Ocean. The 4th annual SOS Ocean Conservation Day starts off with a morning shoreline cleanup. Meet us on the beach at Las Olas Blvd. and A1A. Community Service hours are available. Volunteers should bring their own protective gloves, water, sun block, masks and maintain social distancing. You can register at the event. Volunteer parking is available at the Las Olas Garage, 200 Las Olas Circle.

    After the cleanup, please join us across the street. This year we are excited to announce that we will be partnering with the Las Olas Oceanside Park Farmers Market from 9am to 4pm. Vendors joining us in this year’s SOS Ocean Conservation Day will feature an eclectic array of traditional market fare including organic produce, art, clothing, home goods, apothecary items, artisanal foods and more.

    Within the SOS Ocean Conservation area, ocean/marine conservation groups will engage in outreach with the general public about issues that could be addressed on a local level - which we so desperately need: corals - manatees - lionfish - beach/ocean debris - sharks - sea turtles - manta rays - whales - lobstering - water quality - wildlife rescue - mangroves - fishing regulations - ocean safety and more.

    During the event we will have conservation groups educating the community on how to become more eco-friendly.
