Are you on a crew yet? The city of Palm Coast is coordinating the sixth-annual Intracoastal Waterway Cleanup at 8 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 7, and registration is now open.

At this event, volunteers will remove trash in and along the Intracoastal Waterway, its walkways and canals. Walkers can clean Palm Coast’s paths and trails, and boaters can work in saltwater canals and Intracoastal waters.

The cleanup adventure will begin at Holland Park, 18 Florida Park Drive, where supplies will be distributed. Following the cleanup and trash drop-off, volunteers are invited back to Holland Park for refreshments and an awards ceremony to recognize those who found the most unique “trash.”

Pre-registration is available until Monday, Aug. 26, at www.palmcoastgov.com/icwc, and from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays at the Palm Coast Community Center, 305 Palm Coast Parkway N.E. Registration is also welcome on event day, but supplies will be limited; volunteer packages are guaranteed only for those who pre-register by Aug. 26.

Pre-registered volunteers may pick up their packages early at Holland Park classrooms from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday, Aug. 31, as part of orientation beginning at 9 a.m. Pre-registered participants will receive a T-shirt, water bottle, trash bags, gloves, safety sheet and cleanup results form. Large volunteer groups are encouraged to participate in event orientation at 9 a.m. Aug. 31, at Holland Park.

Palm Coast's Intracoastal Waterway Cleanup Event is co-sponsored by the Florida Inland Navigation District. For more, call Coordinator Carol Bennett at 986-3722.
