Help clean up Treasure Island beach, July 5

June 15, 2010 at 10:59 am Leave a comment

The St Petersburg College environmental clubs and SPC chapter of US Green Building Council Students (you don’t have to be a member of either to participate) are coordinating a Treasure Island beach clean-up July 5, 2010 (yes, the day after the Fourth of July).

Because of all the fireworks and revelry during the holiday weekend, the beaches will be in desperate need of some TLC on July 5.

The beach clean-up will run from 9:00 until 11:00 am; we will be responsible for cleaning a portion of the beach from 104th Ave (Publix on Gulf Blvd) to 107th Ave (Bilmar Beach Resort on Gulf Blvd).  Plan to meet on the beach at the public parking lot located at 10400 Gulf Blvd.  (Across from Publix at Gulf Blvd. and 104th Street).  Limited, free parking will be available on a first come, first served basis.  Please arrive by 9:00 am for free parking.

For driving directions click here.

Bags, gloves and water will be provided by the City of Treasure Island, but please remember to wear a hat, sunscreen, closed toed shoes, etc.

Special thanks to Chipotle Mexican Grill for the free burrito bucks for participants!

Spend a few hours picking up garbage and fireworks and the rest relaxing on a clean beach.

For more information, please contact or call (727) 341-3283.

Hope to see you there!

who we are:

Early in 2008, St. Petersburg College recognized its responsibility to model to our students, employees and community ways to minimize global warming emissions and provide the knowledge to our graduates to help achieve a more environmentally friendly future. Because of this, the College made sustainability (defined as meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs) a top priority. As a result, the Office for Sustainability was established.

what we do:

Working alongside internal and external partners, the Office for Sustainability focuses on the following areas of environmental stewardship: educational programs and corporate training, energy and natural resource conservation, green buildings and facilities, carbon emissions, recycling and student activities.
