The City of Boca Raton, in an abundance of caution, has suspended all group and volunteer activities in its parks, including beach cleanups, until further notice. We look forward to the future when we can safely welcome back the enthusiastic volunteers who make such a difference in our community through their hard work and dedication. We miss you!
For individuals and families who are able to help during this time by picking up trash at Spanish River Park, Red Reef Park, or South Beach Park, we have made it even easier for you! There are clean, sanitized collecting buckets at each beach, located at Lifeguard Towers 4, 9. and 16. Just bring your own gloves or trash pickers!
In 2016, the Clean Swell App was introduced to track trash collected by their volunteers worldwide. Free and easy to use, modeled after the cardboard data sheets previously used in their events, with trash items categorized for easy tracking, keep this app on your phone and submit data anytime, anywhere, as often as you like! You can find instruction sheets and tutorials on the Ocean Conservancy website.
In Boca Raton, please use the group name BocaBeaches2021 on Clean Swell, so we can see just how much we collect!
