May 15 9:00 am – 12:00 am, Special Fort Lauderdale Beach Cleanup  |  No RSVP required

Each year hundreds of beach lovers collect over 80,000 cigarette butts, thousands of plastic straws, and several tons of trash.  We need your help to maintain our pristine beaches and will welcome you for a special cleanup at the HUB, 300 S.
