Young Paddleboarders Clean Florida Waterway

A waterway in Florida often clogs with trash.  The trash lands in the waterway after a rain storm, and then the trash makes its way to the ocean.  

Recently, young volunteers on paddleboards swept the waterway clean.  They used a special paddle with a net that captures the trash, and then they put the trash into a trash can attached to their paddleboard.

Paddleboarders have collected more that 2200 pounds of trash--that never reached our beautiful seas.

 Sea Stars all around!
