GA/FL Football Weekend
Joining Glynn County, the University of Georgia Marine Extension and Georgia Sea Grant, Keep Golden Isles Beautiful actively encourages recycling and litter prevention in the STASH YOUR TRASH public awareness anti-litter campaign surrounding the yearly Georgia/Florida football weekend.
The day prior to the annual football match up greets 10,000+ football fans on a tiny portion of St. Simons Island beach, creating a need for extensive litter prevention messaging and programs.
