Community Cleanup

Saturday, October 23, 2021

10 a.m. to noon

Location: Reddie Point Preserve

Join the Institute of Environmental Research and Education for cleanup at Reddie Park Preserve. This cleanup is part of a NOAA Marine Debris Program grant focused on reducing single-use plastic consumption and fostering long-term pro-environmental behaviors among undergraduates in coastal communities.


Volunteers will be collecting trash and debris found in the park and along the St. Johns River, with a focus on single-use plastic items. Volunteers will also help sort and weight the collected items.
