In celebration of Earth Day, St. Marys Riverkeeper, Keep Nassau Beautiful, and Partners are leading a four county watershed wide cleanup of the St. Marys River and its tributaries. The St. Marys River is 130 miles long and winds through four counties in two states. More than 60,000 locals and visitors depend on the health of the river for tourism, recreation, commercial fishing, and safe drinking water. Wildlife and plant ecosystems rely on the continued cleanliness of the watershed.
Let’s do our part this Earth Day to ensure a healthy St. Marys River for all who depend on it! Following the event, volunteers are invited to attend the annual Earth Day Celebration hosted by White Oak Conservation in Yulee, FL. Guests will enjoy a complimentary lunch at this unique and beautiful wildlife conservation park. The celebration is from 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m., with lunch served at noon.
Volunteers must participate in the cleanup for admittance. Nassau County cleanup sites include: - A1A Shave Bridge/Wade's Place - St. Marys River at US 17 (Blue Bridge) - Goffinsville Park - Holly Point Boat Ramp - King's Ferry - Melton Nelson Boat Ramp - North 14th St Bridge over Egan's Creek - Sheriffs Youth Ranches Camp Sorensen - Tiger Island (Paddle)
