27TH ANNUAL HILLSBOROUGH RIVER AND COASTAL CLEANUP
Hillsborough River State Park
Date: Saturday, September 20th, 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m.
On September 20th, the Department of Environmental Protection’s Hillsborough River State Park will be participating in the 27th Annual Hillsborough River and Coastal Cleanup event. The event is the largest volunteer service event to remove litter from our rivers and oceans. Volunteers are needed to assist in the cleanup of debris from the river and our trails that follow the river. Work clothes and shoes are required. Water, sunscreen and bug spray are suggested. Volunteers that wish to canoe along the river to collect debris will need to bring their own canoe, life jacket, and oars; or they may be rented from our concession.
After the event, volunteers are invited to attend the Rollin’ on the River Rally. The event will have live music, free food, and environmental education booths.
