Our Sierra Club Northeast Florida group will participate in the annual St. Johns River Celebration Clean-Up! This year, Keep Jacksonville Beautiful and JaxParks is partnering with the Riverkeeper to expand the number of sites and make it the most successful event ever. We'll be cleaning up two boat launch sites and a three mile stretch of water!
We will place clean-up crews at the Hood Landing boat ramp (next to Clark's Fish Camp) and at Palmetto Leaves Park near Bartram Park. Our crews will clean up the park areas, then board our kayaks and clean up the trash on Julington Creek between these two points. After we're done, we can go to Clark's for some great food!
Clean-up equipment will be provided. Bring your own kayak or canoe. PFD and whistle are required. Bring water and dress appropriately for shore and water cleaning. No boat? No problem! Come and help with the shore portion of our clean-up.
We'll meet at the Palmetto Leaves Regional Park initially and divide up into two crews.
