Volunteers are needed for the 28th Annual St. Johns River Celebration, Saturday, March 18, from 8 a.m. to noon (times vary according to cleanup site). Participants will help spruce up the city by collecting litter and debris from dozens of pre-selected riverfront and inland sites (sites are listed below). The City and Keep Jacksonville Beautiful are hosting the event in partnership with Florida Inland Navigation District and Surfing’s Evolution & Preservation Foundation as part of the Florida Great American Cleanup, a statewide effort to protect the environment throughout the spring.
Participants must be 18 years old or accompanied by an adult; advance registration is not required. Trash bags and gloves will be provided at event locations. Community service certificates will be available for students. Directly following the cleanup, volunteers are invited to attend an appreciation event at the Riverside Arts Market from noon to 2 p.m., for refreshments and T-shirts (while supplies last).
For more information or to register call Dan Durbec at (904) 255-8276.
