"I hope for your help to explore and protect the wild ocean in ways that will restore the health and, in so doing, secure hope for humankind. Health to the ocean means health for us." - Sylvia Earle, Oceanographer
Let's do our part to help make a difference! Ocean Week on St. John is October 18 to 23 in conjunction with Ocean Conservancy's International Coastal Cleanup. Join Friends for a series of online seminars (schedule available in early October) and a whole lot of beach cleanup!
Twice a year in April and October volunteers and sponsors get to work to keep St. John beaches clean! During Ocean Week (October 18-22) 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 share them! Thank you for getting involved and helping!
Or you can join us! We would love to have you as part of our crew on Saturday October 23 to clean up Drunk Bay! Meeting point is Salt Pond parking lot at 9:00am. We should be done by noon. Please bring water, sunscreen, comfortable shoes as it is a walk to Drunk Bay and the beach is very rocky. Gloves and bags will be provided.
Let's Get Dirty! Help Keep Our Beaches Trash Free!
