The Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation’s Coastal Watch program honored our sanctuary islands this Earth Day by cleaning up Sanibel’s beaches on Saturday, April 22.
The cleanup was preceded by a light breakfast provided by Bank of the Islands at the Bailey Homestead Preserve. Long-time residents, visitors, and friends gathered to enjoy each other’s company before setting out to remove debris from our shores.
“Throughout the year, our volunteer force is out there keeping our little corner of the Earth clean. This Earth Day was no different, and we’re so grateful to all who contributed to the cleanup,” said SCCF Coastal Watch Director Kealy McNeal. “We couldn’t make such a huge impact for our environment without buy-in from our local businesses and community.”
