Ocean Week on St. John

Help Keep Our Beaches Trash Free!

Let's Get Dirty!  Twice a year in April and October volunteers and sponsors get to work to keep St. John beaches clean! April is Earth Month in honor of Earth Day on April 22; and October is in conjunction with Ocean Conservancy's International Coastal Cleanup.

The week of April 18 gloves and trash bags will be available in the Virgin Islands National Park Visitors Center so everyone can pitch in to help clean a beach or a corner of our island in their own time!  Please place full bags and garbage in trash dumpsters and do not leave them beside park garbage bins.  Take photos and tag us with #leaveonlybubblesSTJ and we’ll share them!  Thank you for getting involved and helping!
