Turn into the park, north of the bridge and drive through the park to the boat ramp. We will park and meet under the bridge.
We will clean up along the banks of the Santa Fe river. Kayakers can clean upstream from the park in the kayak.

LEVEL OF DIFFICULTY: Easy to Moderate. About 1.5 hour of working, then we will have a picnic/meeting.
Bring some food for yourself and some to share.
Bring plenty of water, sunscreen, hat, mosquito repellent.
Bring your kayak if you have one. There will be a few kayaks available, with paddle and life jackets. Please contact Maryvonne at if you would like to borrow a kayak.
