World's Largest Coastal Clean-Up This Weekend | News
ST. AUGUSTINE BEACH, Fla. -- The 26th annual International Coastal Clean-Up Day is Saturday, and there are plenty of opportunities to volunteer during the world's largest event of its kind.
According to Keepers of the Coast, nearly 9 million people in more than 150 countries will take part in the event.
"You'll definitely need your shoes; this isn't your typical beach sweep," said Aubrey Mulligan with the St. Augustine Keepers of the Coast.
She said they're not just patrolling the sand on Saturday, but also getting into the Intracoastal and the surrounding salt marshes.
"There's lots of garbage that gets into the rivers from parks and boat ramps that makes its way back to the ocean," she said.
There's no preregistration required if you're interested in helping out. They're picking up trash from 8 - 11 a.m., starting at the Frank Butler West Park at Butler Beach.
However, there are plenty of spots around the area to participate.
