Saturday, Sept. 19, 2009 marks the 24th Annual Ocean Conservancy International Coastal Clean Up – the world’s largest volunteer effort of its kind. Panama City Beach is planning to join the 400,000 volunteers across 104 countries and 42 U.S. states by hitting the sand for this grassroots event.
The Panama City Beach Chamber of Commerce “Green Leadership Committee” will spearhead the local event and is encouraging the community, civic organizations, public and private businesses to join in the effort.
The clean up efforts will take place at two main thoroughfares along the Panama City Beach shoreline including Rick Seltzer Park on South Thomas Drive from 8 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. at the Russell Fields City Pier at Pier Park from 4a.m. to 6p.m. Trash bins, gloves and bottled water will be provided.
