Green Starts Here!
As part of Keep America Beautiful's Great American Cleanup, the nation's largest annual community improvement program, we bring the power of volunteers and participants to create a local change and build sustainable, vibrant communities. Activities include beautifying parks and recreation areas, cleaning shorelines and waterways, handling recycling collections, picking up litter, planting trees and flowers, and conducting educational programs and litter-free events.
Volunteers are invited to the After Trash Beach Bash sponsored by HMSHost at Whiskey Joe’s (7720 Courtney Campbell Causeway) from 12pm to 2pm to say thank you for helping to Keep Tampa Bay Beautiful. Volunteers are welcome to enjoy this free after party which includes music, lunch, games, and fun! All volunteers must provide their own transportation.
