    We are planning our 2014 post-July 4th beach clean-up. This is a service that the South Walton Community Council has provided for years. We are concerned about July 4th fireworks and beach debris and the hazard it poses to fish and other wildlife along our beaches.

    Volunteers are needed for the SWCC July 5th Beach Cleanup. Time is from 7 to 9 AM.

    We need at least one person per access point to serve as beach access site coordinators. Duties are simple: greet the beach access volunteers, pass out water, bags and gloves and record how many bags were collected.

    Following are the sites needing volunteer coordinators:

    • · Inlet Beach
    • · Rosemary Beach (Western green dune walkover, due south of the Town Center)
    • · Seagrove Beach (Santa Clara)
    • · Grayton Beach
    • · Dune Allen
    • · Miramar Beach
    • · Seaside
    • · Blue Mountain Beach
    Water, gloves and trash bags will be provided by the SWCC.

    If you are able to help, please contact Sharon Thompson at 850.622.1031 or Sharon.thompson@mchsi.com.

    Thank you and come out and support South Walton and the SWCC to keep our area clean and pristine.

    [h=1]Join South Walton Community Council Annual Beach Clean Up July 5[/h]


    The South Walton Community Council (SWCC) organizes volunteer efforts each year on July 5th to clean up beach debris from fireworks and Independence Day festivities.

    It's fun and rewarding to gather with locals and visitors to keep our beaches pristine, and debris left on beaches after July 4th celebrations poses a hazard to wildlife, including endangered sea turtles and shorebirds. Come out to support the SWCC’s conservation efforts during the annual July 5th beach clean-up from 7-9am.

    This year, the SWCC is sponsoring beach clean-up at the following locations:
    Miramar Beach
    Dune Allen Beach
    Ed Walline Park
    Blue Mountain Beach
    Grayton Beach
    Santa Clara Beach in Seagrove
    Inlet Beach

    A coordinator will be stationed at each beach location to provide volunteers with trash bags, gloves, and bottled water.

    The SWCC is an organization of residents, business owners and property owners whose mission is to advocate for the preservation, protection and enhancement of the quality of life and natural environment of south Walton County.

    To contact the SWCC call (850) 314-3749 or visit www.southwaltoncc.org. For questions specifically about the July 5th beach clean-up, please contact Sharon at sharon.thompson@mchsi.com.
