On September 26, 2020, the Environmental Learning Center hosted a beach cleanup on Golden Sands Beach collecting 62.8 pounds of trash in only 2 hours.
We collected 1,343 items, 366 being food wrappers, 235 pieces of foam, 375 hard plastic pieces and about 20 pieces of construction debris and various items, totaling a whopping 62.8 pounds!
Immense thanks to all of our ELC volunteers especially our amazing Green Teen!s, our sponsors from Target and NOAA Planet Stewards. Many thanks to our community partners Sunrise Rotary and Coastal Connections for a great volunteer turnout￼￼￼￼￼. About 50 folks of all ages did their part today to reclaim the earth.
￼If you missed this one, you can join us on October 17, 2020 at the Wabasso Causeway and at Wabasso Beach for the International Coastal Cleanup event with ELC and valued partners Keep Indian River Beautiful and Coastal Connections.
