– The Coastal Clean-up is scheduled for Sept. 15th…..

Crystal River Preserve State Park will be taking part in an international effort to clean up the environment for the Coastal Clean-up on September 15th, 2012.  We will be leading a group of volunteers on Ozello trail to clean up as much trash as we can, to help beautify the park and its surrounding areas.  This event will be a good way for people of all ages to lend a hand in their community and help improve the environment. Removing trash beautifies the park and ensures the safety of visitors from broken debris and wildlife that may ingest bags and other trash.

We will be meeting at the John Brown boat ramp on Ozello trail on Saturday, September 15th at 8:00 AM, and the event will last until 12:00 PM. What to bring: water, gloves, sunscreen, bug spray and a snack if desired. Wear long pants, a hat and sturdy, closed toe shoes.  If you or anyone you know are interested in helping out, please let me know as soon as possible, either by phone (330 720 0008), or stopping into the park visitor center to sign up.  If you give me your t-shirt size, we will be able to get you a free t-shirt for participating in the event!
