Three Cheers for a Clean Beach!
Friends of Jupiter Beach has been organizing beach cleanups on the FIRST Saturday of every month since 1994. Volunteers, ages 4 to 84 and multiple generations, arrive from 15 area zip codes to help remove trash & recyclables, then gather for a delightful continental breakfast & “thanks for coming” door prizes. A project that began with a handful of volunteers has evolved into a significant force for environmental care for our marine environment. Today, on average, 210 volunteers help remove an estimated 490 pounds of garbage on this 2 1/2 mile stretch of beach plus the Jupiter Inlet every single month! Our good friends at Rapid Removal donate their time and truck to haul away recyclables, another benefit for our environment. Our efforts to educate the public to “remove trash”, “take it home with you” and “keep the beach clean & dog-friendly” are ongoing. Home page photo by Tom Brodigan, Dogslife Photography
