The fun and fireworks of July 4 often leave in their wake a beach littered with debris. Please join our community effort to remove fireworks and other debris left behind on our beautiful beaches. The South Walton Community Council is sponsoring its annual beach cleanup on the morning of July 5. In addition to the poor appearance presented by littered beaches, the debris is also a safety hazard to nesting turtles and other marine life. Please join us for our beach cleanup at 8AM on July 5 at one of the following beach accesses: Miramar Beach, Dune Allen Beach, Ed Walline, Blue Mountain Beach, Grayton Beach, Santa Clara in Seagrove Beach, and Eastern Lake. We will also use the following accesses: SeaCrest (Mistral, located just west of Mistral development), Rosemary Beach (Western green dune walkover, located due south of the Town Center) and Sand Cliffs (located in front of Sand Cliffs Condominium). Volunteers from SWCC will be at each of these accesses to provide you with trash bags, gloves and water. The SWCC is an organization of residents, business owners and property owners whose mission is to preserve, protect and enhance the quality of life and natural environment of South Walton County. To contact the SWCC call (850) 314-3749 or visit its website at www.southwaltoncc.org. Do NOT shoot fireworks into the lakes or woods.
