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) adopted a mile of beach (Lot 36) on North Shore Clearwater Beach, running from Rockaway St. to 880 Mandalay.

They have scheduled their next beach clean-up Saturday, July 31 starting at 9am, meeting on the beach at Rockaway Street, right in front of the public parking lot.  Bags, gloves and water will be provided, but please remember to wear a hat, sunscreen, closed toed shoes and pants for the dunes, etc.

For driving directions click here.

You can park in the public beach parking or find residential parking further down the road then just walk back.

So again, plan to meet on the beach in front of the public parking lot, July 31 at 9am.  Spend a few hours picking up garbage and the rest relaxing on a clean beach.

Special thanks to Palm Pavilion for the free water and free drink coupons!

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.
