Shoreline Cleanup

Protect & Restore our Blue Planet's Shorelines

February 17, 10 AM - 1 PM | Seddon Channel and Marjorie Park Shoreline Cleanup

 

The Florida Aquarium will be cleaning up and removing beads from the bay as part of after Gasparilla cleanup efforts with partners from Tikkun HaYum, Green Gasparilla, and Keep Tampa Bay Beautiful.

Join The Florida Aquarium team on Sunday, February 17 from 10 AM - 1 PM  for a shoreline cleanup at 97 Columbia Drive, Tampa, Florida to clean up trash and raise awareness of the importance of our clean shores for the health and wellness of marine animals and the natural environment. Our goal is to collect as much trash and debris as possible to contribute to healthier shorelines and oceans!

We will be collecting debris and trash along the beautiful waterfront area of Marjorie Park as well as supporting Tikkun HaYum divers and our Florida Aquarium certified scuba divers that will be removing debris and beads from Seddon Channel.

Come for the whole day, or come for an hour. Any time you contribute helps to protect and restore our blue planet!
