Tampa Bay Watch, in partnership with Keep Pinellas Beautiful, Tampa Bay Green Consortium and Manatee County Parks and Natural Resources is recruiting volunteers for a land and sea based cleanup on Saturday, March 21, 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. This event is family-friendly and open to all ages.

We have already recruited enough volunteers for the shoreline cleanup of Fort De Soto Park and Cunningham Key. Please click here to register to volunteer at the Sunshine Skyway.

We are also recruiting volunteers to work on the fishing piers at the Sunshine Skyway to collect fishing line and debris from our fishing line recycling stations or monotubes. The fishing line that is collected will then be recycled. To learn more about our monofilament recycling programs visit our website. Click here to register for the pier cleanup.

We are partnering with Tampa Bay Green Consortium to implement a Dive Cleanup at Fort De Soto Park's Bay Pier on Saturday, March 21, 8am-12pm. Kayakers, paddleboarders and data collectors are also needed to support the event. Email Volunteer@tampabaygreenconsortium.org to volunteer today!

Additionally, we are partnering with Manatee County Parks and Natural Resources Department for a cleanup of Coquina Beach in Manatee County. The address of the meeting location is 2650 Gulf Drive, Bradenton, FL 34217.
