Jacksonville, Florida Cleanup
We teamed up with Keep Jax Beach Clean for another successful cleanup at Jacksonville Beach. It was REALLY cold but we still had many dedicated volunteers who came out. It’s impressive the level of energy and teamwork and camaraderie that is generated by each of these Clean Our Land events
We pulled out a lot of litter including 8,387 cigarette butts! That’s over 400 packs of cigarettes! Everyone enjoyed the clean up competitions and giveaways for weirdest find and most cigarette butts collected.
Jacksonville Beaches are located on an unnamed barrier island defined by the Atlantic Ocean to the east, the St. Johns River to the north, and the Intracoastal Waterway to the west. This was originally a penninsula. But in 1912, a 10-mile channel was dug as part of the Intracoastal Waterway development, and so now it is and island.
