Annual International Coastal Cleanup

September 16th, STPS is hosting the Annual International Coastal Cleanup at Coconut Point. This day is a promise to bring cleanliness and purity to nature as a whole. It was started as a way to raise awareness about the growing pollution on various beaches of the world. Teams record every small plastic, cigarettes etc., on a chart.  Results are used for grant purposes and to document the need for cleaner beaches and oceans.


Beach Cleanups

Beach cleanups are held the first Saturday after the first Thursday of each month at Coconut Point Park in Melbourne Beach and Cherie Down Park and Beach in Cape Canaveral from 9 am to 11 am. All are welcome to come and help clean up the beach.  Community service hours are available.  Supplies, like trash bags, gloves and pick up tools, are available.  Check the CALENDAR for dates.

NOTE:  We will not be holding one in September as the 5K Turtle Krawl is scheduled for September 9th
