Great St. Johns River Cleanup

2023 Great St. Johns River Cleanup

Supported by Bronco Wild Fund and your Local Ford Dealers – Connecting People to the Outdoors, Responsibly

St. Johns Riverkeeper partnered with counties, businesses, and nonprofits throughout the watershed to clean up the St. Johns River and its tributaries during the First Annual Great St. Johns River Cleanup. Over 75 cleanups took place in Duval, Putnam, Orange, Seminole, St. Johns and Volusia Counties during the month-long Great St. Johns River Cleanup! Between March 18 and Earth Day, April 22, more than 1,300 volunteers joined official county cleanups or organized their own.

St. Johns Riverkeeper is is grateful to have collaborated with so many local governments and other organizations as we expanded our collective cleanup efforts across the St. Johns River watershed this year. Together, we made a difference!

This effort would not have been possible without the support of Bronco Wild Fund, and sponsorships from our Local Ford Dealers and First Horizon Bank! Thank you to the City of Jacksonville, Orange County, Seminole County, and Volusia County governments for coming together to truly make this a watershed-wide effort. Finally, thank you to our partners who either hosted cleanups or attended one of our cleanups with their staff – Earth Kinship, Friends of Welaka, Keep Jacksonville Beautiful, Keep Putnam Beautiful, Rising Tides, Florida Yoga & Paddle Co., Mayo Clinic, Build Up Downtown Jax, Downtown Vision, Central Florida Recon, 904 Happy Hour, Wolf & Cub Jax, BeLit, 904 Seminole Club, and Wicked Barley Brewing!
