Upham Beach Clean Up
Keep Pinellas Beautiful is partnering with the Ocean Conservancy to host the 2023 International Coastal Cleanup (ICC) on Saturday, October 21st, with events taking place between September 1st and October 31st. This annual event brings together volunteers in coastal regions to collect, count, and document the trash they find, acting as citizen scientists all over the world. The Ocean Conservancy then uses this data to study marine debris and release a yearly report detailing the most common types of trash found in coastal areas, the total weight of trash collected, and much more. Be part of the solution and help us turn the tide on trash! Join Keep Pinellas Beautiful and NextHome Realty on Saturday, October 21st as we work together to clean Upham Beach.
