Coastal & Heartland National Estuary Partnership Plastic Pickup

August 24, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Plastic Pickup: Pre-Marine Debris

Saturday, August 24th

9AM-12PM

Each year, eight million metric tons of plastic enter the ocean. Whether it floats for eternity, breaks apart into microplastics, or is ingested by a fish, bird, or animal, this is a serious issue: we’ll do our part to clean our water!

 

Please join us to collect cans, bottles, straw, wrappers, and other assorted litter before it is swept out to sea. The garbage we collect at this event will be used to create a Leviathan Marine Debris Sculpture at the CHNEP Nature Festival!

 

WHAT: Pre-Marine Debris Clean-Up

WHEN: Saturday, August 24th, 9AM-12PM

WHERE: Meet at Punta Gorda City Hall, 326 W. Marion Ave, Punta Gorda, FL 33950

 

If you are unable to participate, please make a point to pick up litter on August 24th. Working together, we can reduce our impact on the environment. Send a picture to outreach@chnep.org for a shout-out on Facebook!
