For those that are still interested, and especially those that have already RSVPd, we'll inform you of the new date as soon as possible.

The October 6 Beach Clean is still on schedule at 2pm, Saturday, October 6, at Turtle Beach.

Kickoff Event a Success

Many thanks to all the volunteers who turned out on Sunday, September 9, to help with the AFTER DEAN BEACH & REEF CLEAN on South Friar's Beach. We collected a bunch of garbage from the beach, the mangrove, and the reef, and we had a good time doing it.


The prizes for collecting the most trash went to Sarah Atkins for surf and Pat Fussey for turf!


The debris collected included plastic cups, plastic bags, bottles, spent fireworks, wire, discarded clothing, cans, bullets(!), fishing lures, Styrofoam, scrap metal, lawn chairs, light bulbs, rope, and other debris that people leave behind.

While cleaning the beaches and the reefs of St. Kitts will leave us with more beautiful places to enjoy, the more serious benefit is a healthier marine and avian population. As our island relies heavily on tourism and fisheries, these are big benefits.

Thanks again to everyone who joined us, and we hope to see everyone back (with friends) for the upcoming events.

Check out more pictures from the event! (Special thanks to E. Cornelia and R. Stimmelmayr for pics)
