Saturday, Sept. 16th, 2017 is International Coastal Cleanup Day; in honor of that, the National Key Deer Refuge and our Friends group FAVOR is hosting a beach cleanup at Long Beach on Big Pine Key from 9:00 am-12:00 pm.  We are looking for volunteers to help clean this magnificent public beach area so it’ll be a beautiful place to walk, and safer for the Key deer, sea turtles, birds and other wildlife.

The Refuge will supply gloves and trash bags, and have water available.  Please bring your own refillable water bottle and appropriate clothes (no flip flops).  We’ll meet out on Long Beach Rd, near the Refuge gate (approx. half mile south of US1, on left side) at 9 a.m. In years past, our local community and visitors have made this event a huge success, we hope to see you all again this year.

For more information call Kristie Killam @ 305-304-9625 or email
