Keep Lee County Beautiful

International Coastal Cleanup

Keep Lee County Beautiful recruits volunteers to foster unity and strengthen community bonds through beautification and improvement efforts across Lee County. For thirty years, this locally activated community improvement program brings the power of volunteers and sponsors together to inspire change and build sustainable, vibrant communities.

Environmental & Economic Hazards
Marine life can easily be entangled in fishing line, nets, and six-pack rings. Fish, birds and turtles mistake trash like styrofoam, plastics, and cigarette butts for food, which may eventually lead to starvation.
 
Marine debris weakens coastal economies by sapping dollars from the tourism and seafood industries. Tourism in Lee County contributed $3 billion to the regional economy last year, and we'd like to keep it that way.
 
Cleaning Beaches
Keep Lee County Beautiful, supported by the Ocean Conservancy and Florida Fish & Wildlife, organizes coastal cleanups in the fall to remove debris along our shoreline.
 
International Coastal Cleanup
Keep Lee County Beautiful is the Lee County coordinator for Ocean Conservancy's annual International Coastal Cleanup, the largest volunteer effort of its kind. Every September for 33 years, ICC has motivated over nine million people from around the world to pick up over 144 million pounds of trash from nearly 300,000 miles of shoreline. All ages are welcome and any individual, family, school, group, place of worship, business or government entity can coordinate or participate in an average of 25 simultaneous projects around the area.

Please select your location to sign up and complete the registration form. Thank you for your support of KLCB!

We recommend all volunteers to wear beach shoes, a hat and sunscreen.  We also ask our volunteers to bring a reusable filled water container to reduce plastic use.
