A photo of the cleanup, Ocean Minded, EarthRehab and the Treehuggers had over 130 participants remove pollution from Kite Beach.
Wind picked up later in the day and it was a spectacular event.
Thank you Florida Kite boarders and Surfers.
I almost forgot the Sky Diver and Middle School 'treehuggers' at 10:30 am photo. :
We got really lucky, the wind didn't pickup until after 1pm.
Our next scheduled Kite Beach Cleanup will be September 20th for the International Coastal Cleanup sponsored by Ocean Conservancy.
You can contact William at EarthRehab anytime before September 20th.
Drop me a line, & I hope to See you there.
