On Saturday September 12, from 7-11 am, Fort Lauderdale Beach Sweep will hold its inaugural beach clean-up event on Saturday at Fort Lauderdale Beach Park.
The non-profit organization, an entity of Beach Sweep America, Inc., will hold clean-ups on the second Saturday of every month on Fort Lauderdale Beach, and is seeking volunteers to help collect litter.
“With the help of volunteers and the City of Fort Lauderdale, Beach Sweep America is honored to introduce a monthly clean-up to sustain our pristine shoreline,” said Beach Sweep America, Inc. Chairman Bobby Lieberman.
It is the mission of Beach Sweep America, Inc. to provide clean beaches for our environmental, recreational and economic well-being.
Volunteers will meet at Fort Lauderdale Beach Park, at the picnic area. Civic groups, students, organizations, and beach lovers are all welcome to attend. Students may receive community service credit. All volunteers are strongly encouraged to register at FortLauderdale.gov/volunteer.
Limited free parking will be available for volunteers at Las Olas Intracoastal Lot, located along 2-174 Las Olas Circle, south of the east ramp of the Las Olas Bridge. Parking is also available at Fort Lauderdale Beach Park South Lot for a fee.
