Keeping Our Beaches Clean

The Florida Coalition for Preservation sponsors ongoing beach clean ups for the children at Gulf Stream School. The children have collected over 600 pounds of trash thus far and recycle as much as possible. In conjunction with the clean-ups, the Coalition has brought in speakers from Sandsifters, Surfrider Foundation, the Sandoway House and life guards from the Department of Parks & Recreation. The presentations have educated the children on beach safety and the effects of litter on our beaches and sea life. A 18 foot inflatable toilet served as a visual reminder to the children that ultimately, all our water sources are connected. Please click here for a schedule of Sandsifters beach clean ups.
