The Great American Cleanup:

Make plans now to join thousands of volunteers of all ages across America who will be taking part in efforts to clean up and improve their local communities.

In celebration of Earth Day month, local activities of the Great American Cleanup include a massive removal of litter and illegal dumping from our public spaces – neighborhoods, roadways, waterways, parks, schools, etc. Additional community improvement activities may include tree plantings, recycling activities, painting over of graffiti or run-down buildings, etc. Demonstrate your individual responsibility by taking part in this annual effort to make Palm Beach County neighborhoods and public spaces a safe, more enjoyable place to live, work and play!

WHEN: 8:00am – 10:00am  

WHERE: Ocean Cay Park, southeast corner of  US Hwy. 1 at 2188 Marcinski Road.  (North of Donald Ross Rd., South of Indiantown Rd.)   Anita Lankler Pavilion (which faces the beach road.)

WHAT HAPPENS:   We clean a 2 ½ mile stretch from the Juno Beach Pier to the southern edge of Carlin Park (crossovers 22-59). Return before 9:30am, enjoy a variety of breakfast foods, drinks, old & new friends and FREE PRIZES!
