2012 Costal Cleanup at the Westshore Sunset Sanctuary

10/20/2012

Tampa Bay Sierra Club and Tampa Audubon Society volunteers will partner to clean up Sunset Sanctuary, a mangrove forest along Old Tampa Bay which serves as habitat for many wading birds and marine life such as horseshoe crabs. Join us at the Westshore Sunset Sanctuary Saturday October 20th, from 8:30 to 11:30 am for a Clean and Healthy Bay.

This cleanup will be done in cooperation with the annual Ocean Conservancy International Coastal Cleanup. Volunteers will be asked to pick up trash and record every item they find on a standardized data card. Ocean Conservancy compiles and analyzes the data each year which is then utilized to assist public policy makers and corporations in their efforts to reduce litter.

Directions to Site: From 1-275, take Westshore Blvd. exit and head south on Westshore. Turn right at San Jose Street. Follow San Jose until you reach an S-shaped curve. The Sanctuary is located on the right.

Volunteers, please wear closed-toe shoes, hat/visor and sunglasses. Be prepared to get wet and dirty. Gloves, trash bags, water and a light snack will be provided.

Please RSVP and include your t-shirt size to:
