"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! Friends Ocean Week on St. John is October 18 to 23. Join Friends for a series of online seminars and a whole lot of beach cleanup!
Drunk Bay Beach Clean Up
SATURDAY, OCTOBER 23
Meet at Salt Pond Parking Lot at 9AM
Join us! We would love to have you as part of our crew on Saturday October 23 to clean up Drunk Bay! 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.
Or you can head out on your own and pitch in to help clean another corner of our island. Gloves and trash bags will be available in the Virgin Islands National Park Visitors Center and Gift Shop. Please place full bags and garbage in trash dumpsters and do not leave them beside park garbage bins.
Thank you for getting involved and helping keep our coast clean!
