The organizer and sponsor, the Marine Industries Association of South Florida (MIASF) and the Florida Inland Navigation District to gather trash from both land and water deposited at 30 county-wide sites.


“We could not have planned a more perfect day for this annual event, the weather was absolutely beautiful, which encourages volunteer participation. The more volunteers, the more debris is removed, it’s really that simple, and our volunteers are some of the best around. We even have a few families that plan their vacations around this event, and we are grateful for their service,” said Lacie Randall, MIASF marketing director.


MIASF scholarship were awarded to Amber Lockhart of New River Middle School, Rudinah Cadet of Broward High School and Abigail Mellinger.
