Cleanup and Dive Against Debris @Blue Spring State Park in Orange City, FL
Oct 26 @ 8:30 am – 11:30 am

Let’s get together to clean up Blue Spring State Park before the manatees come home for the winter!

Trash on land and in the water is a huge problem for manatees and other animals. Let’s get together to clean up Blue Spring State Park before the manatees come home for the winter time! Join us for an on-land and in-water Clean Up & Dive Against Debris at Blue Spring State Park! You can either help on land (where most trash will be found) or by joining a group of scuba divers as part of PADI’s Project Aware Dive Against Debris. Both events are happening on Saturday, October 26th, 2019 at Blue Spring State Park.

On-Land Clean Up: We will be meeting at 8:30 a.m. on the lawn in front of the Thursby House inside the park. Supplies for the on-land Clean Up will be provided. You are welcome to bring your kayak, canoe, paddle board or snorekling gear and clean up in or on the water as well. There is no fee for this event. For additional questions in regards to the on-land Clean Up, please email Cora (Save the Manatee Club) at cberchem@savethemantee.org

Dive Against Debris: If you would like to participate in the underwater Clean Up/Dive Against Debris there will be a mandatory presentation on Friday October 25th, 2019 at 5:30 p.m. at Seminole Scuba (3869 Lake Emma Rd, Lake Mary, FL 32746). The Clean Up will be on Saturday, October 26th, 2019 at 7:30 a.m. at Blue Spring State Park. There is a $50 fee to participate in this effort. Proceeds will be split equally between Save the Manatee Club to help with manatee conservation efforts and Project Aware. For additional questions in regards to the dive Clean Up, please email Gwen (Seminole Scuba) at info@seminolescuba.com. All scuba participants have to pre-register.
