New Year's Day Beach Sweep Slated, Volunteers Needed

BRUNSWICK, GA (December 5, 2023) – Ring in the New Year, welcome in a clean and green 2024 and make a difference at the same time – join in Keep Golden Isles Beautiful’s seventh annual New Year’s Day beach sweep sponsored and hosted by Jenseye Photography! Volunteers meet at the St. Simons Island Old Coast Guard Station beach crossover at 8:30 AM on Monday, January 1st to sign in and receive supplies and direction.

Volunteers will concentrate on possible litter left over from New Year’s Eve merry-making, extending efforts into beach parking lots and as many of the 41 public access points as volunteer turnout will allow.

“While fireworks are prohibited on Glynn County beaches, volunteers will be prepared to remove even the smallest pieces of fireworks debris, preventing possible marine debris that can be harmful to marine life,” said KGIB executive director Lea King-Badyna. “The New Year’s Day cleanup is the brainchild of KGIB volunteers Jenn and Mike Hatcher of Jenseye Photography who will again be leading the cleanup. We greatly appreciate their helping us kick off a clean, green and beautiful 2024.”

All cleanup supplies will be provided and all ages and abilities are welcome to participate.
