Hey gurl, hey! Join Heal the Bay and Venice Pride for one BIG beach cleanup presented by Athens Services. Fabulous prizes will be awarded for the most trash collected, best drag queen, and more. Gay, lesbian, bi, transgender, straight – all are welcome.
On Saturday morning meet at the Venice Pride Flag Lifeguard Tower located north of the Skate Park at the end of Brooks Avenue at 8:30 a.m. All participants must register and sign a mandatory waiver.
Venice Pride’s BIG Beach Cleanup will be easy, fun and kick off your weekend with some excellent karma. Great way to give back to the community. Get your family, friends or colleagues involved. All you need to do is show up…and bring a bucket if possible!
Beach, Please! Big Beach Cleanup Tips:
-Bring cash if you plan to park in the lot (there is no discounted parking), come early to find street metered parking, or rideshare.
-Volunteers 12 and younger must be accompanied by an adult. Volunteers under 18 must have a waiver signed by parent or guardian.
-Service hour forms will be signed by the beach captain at the end of the cleanup. We can not verify service hours after the event concludes.
-Please be prepared to be outside for 2-3 hours. Beach weather can be unpredictably hot or cold, so we recommend dressing in layers. We also encourage you to bring a filled reusable water bottle to stay hydrated, and to bring a snack in case you get hungry. Water is available at all cleanups.
