We know there is an answer, we know the time is NOW.  Algal blooms are here to stay, they are the new normal for Florida.  Our population has grown too much and with the comes excess nutrients that leach into our waters from all the human activity.  Our temperatures are rising along with CO2 concentrations in our atmosphere.  We need a new way to look at this problem.  We need to turn the tide, we have to try.    We are seeking funding to purchase 3 robots that hold the technology that can turn this into a recoverable resource. We are raising $25,000  to get the technology into Florida for trials on Lake Okeechobee.  Be Part of the Solution.  Donate Now. Help us make this happen.

1st Quarter's Moore's Creek Cleanup

Saturday, February 17th  Moore's Creek 1st Quarter Cleanup

It was an awesome day in Fort Pierce with over 65 people coming together at the 10th St Linear Park to help clean litter and deritus from the banks and the waterway of lower Moore's Creek.  We had 3 youth groups, Marine Cleanup Initiative's partner, Sword Outreach and Mentoring, St Lucie Christian Academy and End It!  The young people rocked it!  We collected more than 935# of debris from this beautifully restored Creek.  Thanks to everyone who came out!  Our 2nd Quarter Cleanup will be held May 19th.  Same Time.  Same Place.

2014 spring and summer schedule for 2014

Hello:
After a horrible summer and fall of diving was ruined by the discharges from Lake Okeechobee, I had to take time off and fight to clean up the waters.  You might have seen some of our advocacy in the press or on TV.  We were busy.  Here are some of the events we have in the works and coming up:

April 26th:  Spoil Island cleanup from 9am until mid-afternoon... leaving from the Town of St Lucie Village's marina on Torpey Rd at 9am.  Wear shoes that can get wet but will protect you some.  Bring gloves, bug spray and tools to cut and saw invasive trees.  We will remove them and trash as well.  We expect River Kidz, Troop 772 and loads of warriors to help, so it should be a fun time.  We are hoping to have a cookout at lunch and spend some time talking to the kids and bring them up to speed on conservation methods, the waters, fishing and anything water.

June 6 and 7th:  2nd Annual Lionfish Safari:  information may be found on the facebook page or website.  We meet this week and I will post further info here then.  four person teams.  Captain's meeting on the 6th at the Riverwalk community center and safari in the 7th ending at 5pm at city marina for weigh-in and awarding of prizes.

July 12 and Aug 2nd are annual inlet cleanups for Sebastian (meet 10am at Sebastian Yacht Club Ramp) and Ft Pierce (meet at 2pm, 12A buoy ramp).  details will be coming out soon as tides are checked and times set.  calling all divers, boaters, deck hands and in Ft Pierce.... kayakers as well.

Get your gear ready for lobster season by testing it out at our cleanup dives.

Thank you for all your help.  We were awards several awards this year again for our hard work and dedication.  Let's grow some more and get new record collections.
