Here's How You Can Help Clean Up 125 Miles of Waterways in Martin County and Beyond
Grab a trash bag and a can-do attitude for this year’s Treasure Coast Waterway Cleanup event, happening July 29 at 8 a.m.
In its 10th year, the event is led by volunteers who will be cleaning up 125 miles of waterways in Martin, St. Lucie and Indian River counties.
Since 2008, more than 7,500 volunteers have helped remove 67 tons of trash from the Treasure Coast’s waters.
The event is for all ages, and volunteers will receive complimentary T-shirts. Those on boats will receive commemorative burgees to fly, indicating that they are a part of the event. All volunteers will be invited to an appreciation barbecue in August.
TC Waterway Cleanup will also be hosting a Peck Lake Reef Dive cleanup on July 29 at 5:30 p.m. There will be a dive briefing meeting beforehand on July 26 at 5:30 p.m. at Pirates Cove Resort's Tiki Bar.
