11th Annual Monofilament Cleanup
October 5 @ 8:30 am - 12:30 pm
Sarasota Bay is a unique treasure land of wild birds and marine animals that offers spectacular fishing opportunities . Loosing some fishing line and gear is inevitable, but now is the time to clean it up. Marine debris cleanup is important to our organization’s mission and we’ve been collecting lost and discarded fishing line and gear 11 years.
Join SBW for our 11th Annual Monofilament Cleanup on Saturday October 5 out of the Sarasota Sailing Squadron. Bring a boat or kayak, or just hoof it on foot to cleanup bridges, mangroves and coastlines. You can collect debris in an area near you and bring it to the SSS. Afterward, relax at the Sarasota Sailing Squadron and enjoy a lunch and camaraderie while enjoying the waterside view.
It’s time to enjoy this beautiful weather and donate a few hours to maintaining our local habitats for the birds and marine animals!
