Thanks to Participants in Annual International Coastal Cleanup

October 1, 2020

Thanks to all of you who participated on Sept. 19 in the Ocean Conservancy’s annual International Coastal Cleanup by collecting trash on our beaches.


Members of Sanibel Girl Scout Troop 200 (pictured here) joined the effort at Lighthouse Beach, leaving it much cleaner than it was.

Participants dropped off 316 pounds of trash and multiple crab traps from Sanibel and Captiva at SCCF, filling up our pickup. Even more trash was collected and reported virtually through the Ocean Conservancy’s app.

We are proud to have been a part of the worldwide effort to clean up our shorelines!
