Join SCCF’s Coastal Watch in participating in the Ocean Conservancy’s Annual International Coastal Cleanup on Saturday, Sept. 21. Volunteers will be collecting trash from both Sanibel and Captiva beaches as an island-wide effort to maintain coastal habitat and lead to cleaner, healthier waters. 

This event is held with the support of Keep Lee County Beautiful, which is organizing and supporting International Coastal Cleanup events around the county.

Group Signup
If you would like to have your company, club, or organization participate in the cleanup effort, please select a ‘point person’ to contact for more information. Depending on the availability of the sections and group size, each group will be able to choose their designated section of beach for the event. The group signup deadline is Aug. 1.

Individual Signup
Individuals can sign up to volunteer on Point starting Aug. 16. Beach sections without group signups will be available for individual signups. 

We would like to thank everyone in advance for another amazing year participating in the International Coastal Cleanup!
