Keep Tampa Bay Beautiful presents the Hillsborough River & Coastal Cleanup as part of the International Coastal Cleanup. Unlike a typical litter removal event, this event offers the opportunity for volunteers to engage in vital international research activities by taking on the role of “Scientist for a Day.” With a specific focus on water-based natural resource protection, volunteers collect items and record the data. This information is used to determine future requirements for cleanup initiatives, assess projects that are needed in the area and develop awareness of these needs within the local communities who share these waterways.
What To Bring
- Protective footwear (close-toed)
- Work or garden gloves
- Reusable water bottle
