2011 International Coastal Cleanup - Get Registered

It's that time of the year again to get the family participating in the International Coastal Cleanup. This isIcc-logo-coastal-cleanup  
a yearly event through the Ocean Conservancy and it's a great opportunity to teach your children about the importance of keeping the beach clean.

We participate each year in cleanups such as this. Here is our recap from last year's International Coastal Cleanup, as well as the Halifax River Cleanup. It's great to get kids helping with this so that they learn to not only help clean the beach, but that it is important to give back to the community and do things like this to help.

You can register your family now to participate in the event. You can do that here. There will be checkpoints all along the beach in the Daytona Beach, New Smyrna Beach, and Ormond Beach area. Get registered, help clean up, and know that your family is part of the solution!
