October 16th, 4 p.m.Young Friends of Jupiter Beach Cleanup @ Ocean Cay Park, southeast corner of  US Hwy. 1 at 2188 Marcinski Road.  Young Friends of Jupiter Beach, a group of high school students who care about the environment, was started by Graham Zucker, a high school student at William T. Dwyer High School. The 3rd Sunday of the month, at 4 PM, the students gather at Ocean Cay Park for a beach cleanup. The students are becoming the next generation of environmental stewards and know the importance of preserving Jupiter’s beaches, its’ habitat and marine life for future generations. Students from local and neighboring high schools are invited to join the group. After the beach cleanups the students gather for volleyball games and snacks. As the group grows they continue to look for other ways to expand their environmental preservation message.
