When: September 5 – October 31, 2020
Time: Anytime you can
Where: On land or on sea in coastal Hernando County
1) Please register and complete the volunteer waiver forms on our site: https://ufcleanup.eventbrite.ca
2) Select a coastal or marine area in Hernando County to clean
3) Take pictures and share on social media using #UFIFASvirtualcleanup
4) Tally the trash as you collect it

The data from these cleanups helps us to better understand the marine debris pathways and help prevent that debris from entering our waterways. Please remember to log the data as best as you can. All information is useful!
We look forward to a great virtual coastal cleanup! Please remember to follow all CDC guidelines while participating in the event.
