Volunteers Needed for Broad Creek Litter Clean Up Event
On Sunday November 1st The Outside Foundation will host a litter clean up of the Broad Creek from 10am to 2pm. Volunteers are needed to collect trash by boat, kayak, paddle board, foot or bicycle. For those needing a kayak to use for the event, Outside Hilton Head is offering free rentals with reservations. This is the fourth clean up hosted by The Outside Foundation this year, made possible by a grant from Beaufort County Public works and donations from Atlantic Community Bank and Outside Hilton Head. Clean-up supplies and snacks will be provided for volunteers. Those wanting to participate can come when they wish within the time frame of the event.
“Year to date, our trash clean up programs have collected over 800 pounds of trash out of local waterways! Volunteers for these clean ups have made a tangible difference in our community – not only to the people who enjoy our waterways, but also to the flora and fauna that we share it with. I encourage everyone to come out for this fun Sunday on the beautiful Broad Creek and help us reach our goal of collecting 1,000 pounds of trash this year!” said Jean Fruh, Executive Director of The Outside Foundation.
