Charleston County Park and Recreation Commission (CCPRC) is seeking another site-captain for the 31st Beach Sweep/River Sweep!! This event is South Carolina’s largest one-day volunteer waterway cleanup event. Every 3rd Saturday in September since 1988, thousands of South Carolinians clear beaches, rivers, lakes, marshes, and swamps of aquatic debris. The S.C. Sea Grant Consortium leads the beach cleanup efforts, while SCDNR leads the inland cleanups. The Sweep takes place in conjunction with the International Coastal Cleanup, coordinated by the Ocean Conservancy.
For this year’s event, on September 21, 2019, CCPRC will host cleanups at three sites with three different Site Captains. They are in need of a third captain to host the Cleanup efforts at one of their boat landings. Captains will receive the materials needed to host the sweep as well as a t-shirt.
If anyone is interested in either being a site captain, or joining the efforts as a team member – please contact Allyssa Zebrowski, Natural History Roving Interpreter & Stewardship Aide at (804) 731-7873 or email AZebrowski@ccprc.com
