Following last years success, students from Nova Southeastern University’s Oceanographic Center (NSUOC) will again be organizing the cleanup efforts at John U. Lloyd State Park.

Every year, the Ocean Conservancy leads more than half-a-million people in 100 countries remove millions of pounds of trash from beaches and waterways all over the world -and collect data on what they find. Come out and help in the efforts to make the oceans and your local beaches a cleaner, healthier place.
