12th Annual Treasure Coast Waterway Cleanup July 27


s summer comes into full swing, so do the organizers of the Treasure Coast Waterway Cleanup, which is slated for Saturday, July 27, 2019. Conducted by the Marine Industries Association of the Treasure Coast (MIATC) and sponsored by the Florida Inland Navigation District, since 2008, the Treasure Coast Waterway cleanup has engaged more than 9,600 volunteers, who have removed more than 82 tons of trash from the waterways of Martin, St. Lucie and Indian River counties. The counties of Martin, St. Lucie and Indian River, along with the municipalities of Stuart, Port Saint Lucie, Fort Pierce, Vero Beach and Sebastian will all recognize July 21-27 as Treasure Coast Waterway Cleanup Week, as well as the efforts of the Marine Industries Association of the Treasure Coast (MIATC), the Florida Inland Navigation District (FIND), and the businesses, community organizations and 1,000-plus volunteers who are dedicated to keeping Treasure Coast waterways clean. “The waterways in the District can accumulate trash and debris from many sources. FIND sponsors voluntary waterway clean ups in each of the 12 counties in the District with Keep Florida Beautiful affiliates, as well as Marine Industry Associations,” says Janet Zimmerman, Assistant Executive Director for FIND. “We believe these cleanup efforts are important not

just for the health of the waterway because of the removal of the debris, but they also help to bring together the users of the waterway in a spirit of community and in a way, that fosters environmental awareness. These are good projects, and we enjoy sponsoring them up and down the waterway.” This year’s volunteers will receive a commemorative 12th annual event t-shirt and watercraft participants

will also receive a commemorative burgee. Volunteers will be recognized at a thank you barbeque on a Sunday in August (date to be announced). Individuals, organizations or companies who would like to sponsor efforts or volunteer at one of the 25 cleanup sites along the Treasure Coast, will find more information at, or contact or contact April Price at (772) 285-1646.
