Small things? BIG Impact! Coastal Cleanup & Estuarine Day

How to make a big impact? How to make my small difference? How to be part of change?? For me it was those Publix shopping bags. You know: remembering to take them with you, choosing to use them rather than plastic bags...a relatively easy planet-friendly thing you can do, but something requiring a little forethought.

The GOOD NEWS? There are some great *GREEN* things you can do that don't require planning or commitment beyond this or next weekend. If you're taking the fam to the beach this weekend anyway, why not get in on the good vibrations??

International Coastal Cleanup Day (Saturday, Sept. 17) - All you have to do is show up at the GMT NER Reserve's Education Center, willing to help clean up. Collect garbage, pay attention. Your data will be collected and the whole wide world will benefit from your helping hands. For more info, see us online or call 904.823.4500.

National Estuaries Day (Saturday, Sept. 24) - Filled with family fun including a treasure hunt, this is a helping hand everyone can feel great about! Get into the spirit with our pirate theme and hunt while you learn more about the Reserve and all it has to offer. All you have to do to get in on action is BE THERE. There's a $5 charge per car, and these proceeds go to support the work of the NERR. More info? 904.823.4500 or DM me. Can't wait to see you out there!

And please don't forget OceanWise! Coming up October 15, this is the signature annual fundraising event for the Friends of the GTM Reserve. More info? DM us, or call 904.823.4500. Or just stay tuned - more info coming online as the event gets closer.
