September 3rd, 8 a.m.Friends of Jupiter Beach Cleanup @ Ocean Cay Park, southeast corner of  US Hwy. 1 at 2188 Marcinski Road.  Friends of Jupiter Beach has been organizing beach cleanups on the FIRST Saturday of every month since 1994.  Volunteers, ages 4 to 84 and multiple generations, arrive from 15 area zip codes to help remove trash & recyclables, then gather for a delightful continental breakfast & “thanks for coming” door prizes.  A project that began with a handful of volunteers has evolved into a significant force for environmental care for our marine environment.  Today, on average, 210 volunteers help remove an estimated 490 pounds of garbage on this 2 1/2 mile stretch of beach plus the Jupiter Inlet every single month!  Our good friends at Rapid Removal donate their time and truck to haul away recyclables, another benefit for our environment.  Our efforts to educate the public to “remove trash”, “take it home with you” and “keep the beach clean & dog-friendly” are ongoing.  MEET: 8:00am SHARP every First Saturday of the Month!   Ocean Cay Park, southeast corner of  US Hwy. 1 at 2188 Marcinski Road.  (North of Donald Ross Rd., South of Indiantown Rd.)   Anita Lankler Pavilion (which faces the beach road.)   We clean a 2 ½ mile stretch from the Juno Beach Pier to the southern edge of Carlin Park (crossovers 22-59).  Some sections require driving; some sections require walking. We are finished by 10am sharp.  Dogs stay home today!  ARRIVE WEARING: Closed-toe shoes, hats, sunscreen, bug spray.  NO FLIP FLOPS.  Protect arms and legs.
