PLEASE HELP CLEAN CITY WATERWAYS AND PATHS
Your assistance is needed to help clean and protect our community's treasured waterways and adjacent trails. The City of Palm Coast is coordinating the Fifth Annual Intracoastal Waterway Cleanup on Saturday, September 8th. This special event will pull together community volunteers to remove trash in and along the Intracoastal Waterway, its walkways and canals. Walkers can clean the paths and trails and boaters can coast along the waterways.
The clean-up adventure begins at 8:00 a.m. at Holland Park where supplies will be distributed to commence the morning activities. Following clean-up and trash drop-off efforts, volunteers are invited back to Holland Park to enjoy snacks and beverages, provided by Winn-Dixie, and participate in a special awards ceremony to recognize those who found the most unique 'trash'.
Larger volunteer groups are encouraged to participate in event orientation at Holland Park on September 1st at 9:00 a.m. Holland Park is located at 18 Florida Park Drive. Groups may also learn more about the Waterway Cleanup by logging onto the City's website at www.palmcoastgov.com and clicking onto the Intracoastal Waterway Cleanup Announcement on the front page. Pre-registration is available until August 20th through the City event website and at the Palm Coast Community Center. On event day, registration is also welcomed, but supplies will be limited.
Palm Coast's Intracoastal Waterway Cleanup Event is co-sponsored by the Florida Inland Navigation District (FIND). Won't you please help to FIND and dispose of our waterway refuse? For more information, please call the Intracoastal Waterway Coordinator Carol Bennett at 386-986-3722.
