Have you heard of Ocean Hour?
It’s a phenomenal organization that seeks to clean our local beachfront and water access areas. Utilizing volunteer efforts, Ocean Hour removes thousands of pounds of debris and litter from local lands and waterways.
Last Saturday they did another big wood cleanup, from debris still left by Sally, on the north end of Naval Live Oaks in Gulf Breeze. Twenty-seven volunteers picked up everything from the smallest trash to heavy wood. They estimate at least 3 tons of weight in wood and 139 lbs of bagged trash from one clean up.
This Saturday, March 11, from 9 a.m. – 10 a.m., join the Scenic Highway Foundation, Ocean Hour, Earth Ethics, and the City of Pensacola at Bay Bluffs Preserve for the cleanup of Bay Bluffs, Chimney Park, and the surrounding area. Sign-in is at 8:45 a.m.
Also this Saturday, join the East Hill Neighborhood Association for a park clean-up this Saturday, March 11 from 8-10 a.m. at Operto Square (corner of 16th & Blount). Meet new friends and enjoy the outdoors while we work to make our parks beautiful for all. Bring gloves and yard equipment (rake, clippers, etc.) if possible. For questions, contact the Parks Chair Amy Farrell at firstname.lastname@example.org.
All ages are welcome and all cleanup supplies will be provided. Closed-toe shoes are recommended.
