Earth Day Cleanup at St. Andrews State Park
Help Keep Our Beach Beautiful! Join in a Coastal Cleanup on April 21st at St. Andrews State Park in Panama City for an early Earth Day Celebration with the parks long term partner, Friends of St. Andrews State Park.
Volunteers of all ages are invited to come together to help clean up the ecosystem by walking the beach shoreline and removing debris/trash from the beach. Divers will remove debris/trash from submerged areas around the Jetty and pier.
This event will provide an opportunity for volunteers to do something meaningful for the planet by giving back to the community and keeping our beaches clean.
Nearly a million visitors come to St. Andrews State Park annually for pristine white sandy beaches and a chance to witness the Real Florida. Seeing a shoreline spotted with litter is not something that park visitors want to experience, plus it provides added dangers to park wildlife.
This project serves the local community and tourists by providing a clean and safe experience enjoying the beautiful beaches in Panama City Beach. Cleaning the shoreline ensures that beachgoers can have an enjoyable experience, and it also ensures that nesting sea turtles have a safe nesting area. The sea turtle nesting season begins in May, and this project will help to ensure that they have access to important nesting areas in our local community.
This is the link volunteers need to use if they will be coming to the park for the Earth Day Cleanup.
