US1 Cleanup with the Big Pine Changemakers

November 12, 2022 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm EST

Us1 cleanup with the big pine changemakers

Join the CoastLove Big Pine Changemakers as we continue our campaign to Protect Your Paradise.

We have adopted two miles of US1 on Big Pine from MM29-31 (east of North Pine Channel Bridge going to Industrial Road by the Chamber of Commerce).

Join us on Saturday, November 12th from 8:30AM – 11:30AM as we clean up debris and make our community litter free. We will meet at Big Pine Academy school by the Flea Market and divide into teams to work both sides of US1.

Please note: Participants must be able to walk a mile along the side of a busy highway

What to Bring:

  • Reusable water bottle
  • Safety vest (if you have one)
  • Trash grabber (if you have one)
  • Reef-friendly sun protection
  • Clothes that can get dirty
  • Closed toed shoes that are comfortable to walk distances in

We will be providing reusable trash bags, gloves, and a water refill station.

As we will be working alongside of a highway, we will be limiting this cleanup to the first 30 volunteers in an effort to keep everyone safe. Anyone under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult.

Please also be sure to watch this FDOT 5-minute safety video: https://www.fdot.gov/maintenance/aahinfo.shtm

Great for families. Bring the kids and friends to beach cleanups and restoration projects. See where plastics end up and why it’s important to reduce plastic use and commit to more sustainable agriculture and fishing with less adverse human impact.

Be sure to RSVP, sign a waiver (if applicable) and check with the mentioned organizer to confirm details in advance.

Some snorkel, dive or beach cleanups may require proper certification and being comfortable in or around the water and familiar with water safety. If you have any additional questions, feel free to reach out. Mahalo 🤙
