North Florida Land Trust will be spending Earth Day cleaning up a stretch of road on Big Talbot Island. NFLT is asking the public to join them on Saturday, April 22 from 9 a.m. to noon to clean up the section of highway to prevent trash from entering the state park and the waterways.
NFLT adopted the three-mile segment of Heckscher Drive/A1A between Houston Avenue and the Nassau Sound Bridge through the Florida Department of Transportation’s Adopt-A-Highway Litter Removal Program. To sign up to help, visit http://signup.com/go/FEbz93 or contact Genevieve Fletcher at email@example.com or (904) 479-1967.
It is recommended that volunteers wear closed-toe shoes, long pants, sunscreen and bug spray. NFLT will provide safety vest and will host a safety briefing prior to the clean-up. Volunteers are asked to bring a reusable water bottle and water refills will be provided. Lunch will be served after the clean-up at NFLT’s Milam House on Big Talbot Island.
