ABOUTWaterway Cleanup EVENT Saturday March 2nd
This coming Saturday, March 2nd, Water Taxi will once again be participating in the South Florida Marine Industry Association’s Waterway Cleanup. Fort Lauderdale’s waterways are of course essential to our livelihood and this is an great opportunity for us to get together and help keep them clean.
Each year the Broward County Waterway Cleanup attracts thousands of volunteers from many neighborhoods and communities throughout the county. People of all ages come out in their boats and along the shores to clean all kinds of debris from the waterways.
All volunteers will receive an official WWCU T-shirt and invitation to the Trash Bash after-party event. The cleanup runs from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., with the Trash Bash immediately following.
Volunteers must be 14 years of age to be on site without an 18+ adult.
