‘World Oceans Day’ Cleanup in Frederiksted

June 11 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am

The V.I. Department of Planning and Natural Resources invites the public to celebrate World Oceans Day with a ‘Street to Reef Cleanup.’ The welcome area will be next to the market under the Coastal Zone Management tent. There, volunteers will be able to sign in, receive cleanup supplies and data sheets and guidance on where to make the biggest impact. This cleanup will occur above and below the water. If planning on diving or snorkeling, be sure to arrive with gear ready; DPNR will provide a mesh bag to collect trash. For land-based volunteers, please be sure to wear safe shoes, and wear your reef safe sun protection. Safety gloves and 5-gallon buckets will be provided; or bring your own. After completing cleanup, enjoy light refreshments and collect prizes. For info, email Kitty Edwards.
