About The Event
Join us for this free family-friendly cleanup event. All are welcome to attend, and encouraged to participate!
The day will be action-packed starting with a kayak trip to clean up Deer Key, youth empowerment activities, land-based cleanups, guest speakers, food, and the Coastlove Education Village. Attendees are welcome to join the cleanup activities, spend the day learning about our islands and local ecosystems, and enjoy chances to win cool prizes!
- Cleanup & Planting: 10am - 1pm
- Education Village: 10am - 3pm
**Attendees are not required to participate in the cleanup activities; however, you must register in advance if you do plan to participate in the cleanup activity.** Click "Get Started" to register!
A limited number of kayaks will be provided by the park so make sure you sign up early! We also encourage you to bring your own kayak or paddleboard to paddle out to the island, if you like. The majority of the work will be done in or near the water, removing trapline, rope, and other large items; therefore, this portion of the event is NOT recommended for young children. For those not participating in the kayak trip portion of the cleanup, land-based cleanups will take place for all!
Don't forget to bring your reusable bottle to refill. We will not be handing out bottles of water or cups, but water will be made available.
Park entry will be free for all event participants. Once at the gate, let the attendant know that you are there for the event, and they will direct you where to park.
What to Bring/Wear/Know:
- Closed-toe shoes are required for cleanup participants!
- Wear clothes and pack bags that can get wet/dirty.
- Change of clothes and a towel.
- Bring reef-safe sunscreen
- Bring bug spray and/or wear long sleeves and pants.
- A reusable bottle for refilling at the water stations.
Special thanks to our local partners at Curry Hammock State Park and Friends of Curry Hammock State Park for helping make this project possible!
