April 27 | 9 AM
Picnic Island, Tampa, FL
As a part of the Great American Cleanup, The Florida Aquarium in partnership with Keep Tampa Bay Beautiful will be cleaning up local Tampa shorelines and planting mangroves to protect and restore important marine habitat and ecological resources in Tampa Bay.
Our goal is to collect as much trash and debris as possible to contribute to healthier shorelines and oceans. We will also be planting mangrove propagules that have been raised in The Florida Aquarium's Wetlands gallery. Come for the whole day, or come for an hour. Any time you contribute helps to protect and restore our blue planet!
Join The Florida Aquarium team by choosing 'Picnic Island' as your cleanup location.
