38th Annual Waterway Cleanup In Hollywood
Hundreds of volunteers will take to the water and shoreline next weekend as part of the Broward County Waterway Cleanup
HOLLYWOOD - Established more than 30 years ago, the Broward County Waterway Cleanup is an annual grassroots “spring cleaning” event that draws hundreds of volunteers to sites across Broward County to remove trash and debris from local waterways.
This year’s waterway cleanup is set for Saturday, March 7 from 9 a.m. – 1 p.m. In Hollywood, groups will gather at the Hollywood Marina, 700 Polk Street (Water Access); Holland Park, 801 Johnson Street (Boat Ramp Access); Rotary Park, 3150 Taft Street (Land Access); or Anne Kolb Nature Center at West Lake Park, 751 Sheridan Street (Land Access Only). Each year, hundreds of volunteers in Hollywood get on their boats or walk along the shoreline and canal banks to collect trash from local waterways, then celebrate with an after party.
The Annual Waterway Cleanup takes place county-wide and is the largest and longest-running environmental event in Broward. It is organized by the Marine Industries Association of South Florida (MIASF). In 2014, nearly 1,700 volunteers of all ages worked at 30 locations across the county to remove 17.9 tons of trash and debris from our waterways, rivers and canals. For information on the 38th Annual Waterway Cleanup in Hollywood, call the Hollywood Marina at 954.921.3035.
