    Friends of South Walton Sea Turtles Volunteer Beach Ambassado Team and Friends have been invited to participate with Bay County's Keep PCB Beautiful team in a mid-summer/post July 4th Beach Clean-Up Project on Saturday, July 7th. Registration will open at 8:30 am. Beach Clean-Up from 9:00-11:00 am. All are welcome to come help clean up Walton County Beaches.

    In Walton County, efforts will be focused on two regional access parks:

    Ed Walline Regional Beach Access

    4447 W County Hwy 30A, Santa Rosa Beach, FL 32459
    Team Leader: Laurie Reichenbach

    Miramar Beach Regional Access
    2375 Scenic Gulf Drive, Miramar Beach, FL 32550
    Team Leader: Michele Philips
    Bring: Sunscreen, Water Bottle, Sun Hat, Personal Supplies required to work in the heat and sun.

    The Walton County Beach Operations will be providing plastic trash bags for your use. In addition, the PCB Team has contacted 4Ocens at 4Ocean is Actively Cleaning our Oceans and Coastlines and they have said they will be sending promotional items for those who participate (first come first served as we do not know what will be sent).

    Bay & Walton Counties have joined forces to target firework debris and summer build up of trash in an effort to call attention to #cleandarkflat. As well as improving the beach’s façade, the clean-up effort taking place across the Emerald Coast will provide a safer nesting area for sea turtles plus increased mobility for law enforcement officials patrolling the beach at night.

    The Friends of South Walton Sea Turtles is a volunteer group that was created to work alongside South Walton Turtle Watch (SWTW). The Friends of South Walton Sea Turtles is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the importance of nurturing and protecting sea life along the beaches and rare coastal dune lakes of South Walton County in the panhandle of Florida. Through education, the organization seeks to increase awareness of the delicate balance that exists between the land and the sea. Every creature has a purpose to fulfill, and it must be preserved.

    If you would like to get involved with the volunteer group, visit their website or sign up to volunteer here.
