Keep Lee County Beautiful

Monofilament Madness

**This is a water based event that requires a personal watercraft.**

The Keep Lee County Beautiful Marine Cleanup is an annual event during which volunteers go out in boats, kayaks, canoes, jet skis and anything else that floats, to remove monofilament fishing line and other harmful debris from the mangrove areas of Lee County. The boaters begin working at safe light (dawn) and continue until around noon at which time they are treated to a Volunteer Appreciation Lunch by Sam Galloway Ford. Because of the focus on fishing line, the project committee has affectionately dubbed the cleanup “Monofilament Madness”. It is hoped that through educational awareness, the people who are causing the problem will be reached and their behavior modified so that, among other reasons, wildlife will be spared agonizing deaths from entanglement in monofilament fishing line.

The cleanup is from 8:00 AM to 1:00 PM with a volunteer appreciation lunch served at 12:00 PM.

**This is a water based event that requires a personal watercraft.** We will have a very limited amount of available kayaks at Gulf Coast Kayak, and limited space on boats, available for our volunteers that do not bring their own craft. These kayaks and boat spots will be given out on a first come first serve basis.

Date: 11/02/2019 (Sat.)
