CORAL SPRINGS, FL – If you’re looking to volunteer and clean up Coral Springs and Broward County waterways, here’s your opportunity.
The annual Broward County Waterway Cleanup is kicking off on March 6 and will continue every weekend in March at sites across the region, including Riverside Park in Coral Springs.
Started in the late 1970s, the cleanup -- organized by the Marine Industries Association of South Florida -- is the county’s largest and longest-running environmental event with thousands of volunteers of all ages cleaning debris from waterways in their boats, kayaks, canoes, paddleboards, and by foot, according to the event’s website.
The 2020 cleanup removed 25 tons of trash and debris from waterways, rivers, and canals.
According to the website, each participant has to register online in advance and electronically sign a waiver to participate.
