The International Coastal Cleanup is an annual event organized by the Ocean Conservancy – the Cedar Key community has been participating for over 10 years! Please come out and join us for the cleanup from 8 AM – 12 PM. Volunteers will receive a free lunch and t-shirt (while supplies last).

To participate, simply show up and check in at the Cedar Key City Marina (1st and A street) between 7 and 8 AM to pick up trash bags and get assigned to an area. We also need help counting and sorting the items collected and if you want to help with this part, head on down to the Marina around 10:30 AM. Please bring your own gloves!

More info from the Ocean Conservancy

Nearly 12 million people and counting have been part of the world’s biggest volunteer effort to protect the ocean. Will you join us this year?

Today, plastic has been found in 62% of all sea birds and in 100% of sea turtle species.

A problem as big as plastic in the ocean requires a big response! By participating in the International Coastal Cleanup, you can make a difference. You’ll join millions of volunteers just like you, who love the ocean and want to protect it. https://oceanconservancy.org/trash-free-seas/international-coastal-cleanup/
