International Coastal Cleanup hosted by Volunteer Beach Ambassadors and Friends of South Walton Sea Turtles


Event Description

The Visit South Walton Volunteer Beach Ambassador Team, along with Friends of South Walton Sea Turtles, invites all community members and visitors to join International Coastal Cleanup 2021 on the beaches of South Walton. The event takes place Saturday, September 18, from 9 to 11 a.m.

To help spread out volunteers, hosted clean ups will take place at 5 of South Walton’s regional beach accesses, allowing individuals to work independently or in small family/friend groups, maintaining a 6-foot social distance from others and effectively cleaning more of Walton County beaches. Private homeowners and condo/resort HOA’s are encouraged to join in organizing cleanups as well. 

All participants may choose to count their collected debris on the Clean Swell App, available through the App Store https://apps.apple.com/us/app/clean-swell/id985692119 or at Google Play https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.oceanconservancy.cleanswell.

Coastal Cleanup volunteers may also sign in with a Visit South Walton volunteer beach ambassador at the regional beach access to report and tally total time spent in support of International Coastal Cleanup day. Volunteer hours may also be emailed to Laurie@VisitSouthWalton.com to be counted in the community wide total of time spent cleaning South Walton’s community beaches.

If you would like to join in a cleanup at a regional beach access, you will find Visit South Walton Volunteer Beach Ambassadors at the following locations:

  • Inlet Beach Regional Access, 139 S Orange St., Inlet Beach
  • Santa Clara Regional Access, 3468 E Co Hwy 30A, Seagrove

  • Dune Allen Regional Access, 5999 W Co Hwy 30A, Dune Allen
