Beach Take Over - Virginia Key
Every year, hundreds of pounds of garbage wash up on the shores of Virginia Key. Volunteer efforts have done an amazing job of keeping the Island’s shoreline clean. However, we need YOUR HELP!
We will be taking a short hike to North Point Beach, where much of the debris that gets washed up on the shore is from the neighboring port, Fischer Island, and passing boat traffic. We have found things such as propellers, coolers, buoys, and even animal bones.
Bags and Gloves will be supplied to Volunteers. Once we are done with the Clean Up we will return to VKOC to weigh and record all debris found!
KAYAKS & PADDLE BOARDS
As a courtesy of Virginia Key Outdoor Center, a limited amount of kayaks will be available to volunteers for FREE. To RSVP for Kayaks & Paddle boards please visit vkoc.net/cleanups
