Like cleaning the waffle iron after a tasty homemade waffle or keeping a backyard pool not green and leaf-free, some of life’s best times require a whole bunch of preparation and clean-up.
Case in point: Mardi Gras revelries are here! So after you Laissez les bons temps rouler at the parades this weekend, consider joining the Pensacola & Perdido Bays Estuary Program (PPBEP) crew for a bead clean-up Sunday morning from 9-12 at Plaza Ferdinand.
Whoever picks up the most beads will earn swag and prizes from PPBEP. And the good deed of ensuring all this plastic stays out of our waterways has gotta worth a free “cheat day” in the coming Lent season.
Fourth District City Councilman Jared Moore says, “The PPBEP Staff and Board are currently working to become the 29th Estuary Program and first to earn the federal designation in the past 3 decades, which will expand the impact we can have on stewardship of our invaluable natural resource! The bead clean up is just one of many ways the program is working to keep our waters clean.”
