The 19th annual St. Johns River Cleanup & Celebration presented by the City of Jacksonville Keep Jacksonville Beautiful Commission will be held on Saturday, March 22, 2014 as Jacksonville’s kick-off event for the Florida Great American Cleanup. Nearly 70 sites can be found throughout the city.
A full list of each site location for the St. Johns River Cleanup and Celebration is now available.
This year, new partnerships with Riverside Avondale Preservation, San Marco Preservation Society, Murray Hill Preservation Association and Springfield Restoration and Preservation have added dozens of new sites taking the cleanup from the shoreline to the streets to prevent trash from ever reaching the river.– Beautify your neighborhood and streets and prevent trash from entering storm drains and making it to the river. – Clean one of the many riverfront parks and shoreline of the St. Johns. – Get out on the water in your kayak, canoe, or boat and help remove that hard to reach trash and debris. – Get a team together from your office, church, scouts, or civic group and join the effort. – Cleanup supplies will be provided at each site.
Cleanup volunteers will receive a ticket that may be redeemed at the Riverside Arts Market from Noon – 2 pm for refreshments and a t-shirt, while supplies last. http://www.riversideartsmarket.com
