Blue Spring Cleanup for Manatees @ Blue Spring State Park
Aug 26 @ 9:00 am – 11:00 am

Help us clean up Blue Spring State Park, which is vital habitat for manatees!

Every piece of trash on land can blow into the water and present a hazard for manatees who can get entangled in debris or ingest it.

We will meet at 9 a.m. on the lawn in front of the Thursby House by the lower parking lot. Buckets, gloves, trash bags and pickers will be provided, but feel free to bring your own.

No pre-registration is required. This is a family-friendly event.


This event is in collaboration with Volusia County and Blue Spring State Park.
