Meetup Description: The annual Great American Cleanup is sponsored by Palm Beach County Beautiful Inc. . Palm Beach Pack & Paddle will be working with Florida Paddling Trails Assoc. to clean up the shoreline areas around J.D. MacArthur State Park on Singer Island and the nearby Munyon Island and Little Munyon Island.

We will use our kayaks and canoes to get to the trash that can only be accessed by boat. Please contact Geoff Wilson for details at[masked] or [address removed].


We will launch our boats from the South Kayak Launch which is just south of the main entrance to J.D. MacArthur State Park. Since we will try to get on the water by 9am, you may want to come a little earlier to get your boat off the car and to set up and chat with the group. You may want to bring some trash bags, gloves, water to drink, etc. in addition to your usual paddling gear.

You probably already know this, but a PFD (life preserver) and a whistle are mandatory equipment for paddling. Many people chose not to wear the PFD, but it must be accessible on your boat with a whistle if you get stopped by the police/marine patrol/coast guard.
