25th Annual Billy Sandifer Big Shell Beach Cleanup
Date: Saturday February 29, 2020
Time and Place: We ask that all volunteers show up no later than 8 am at the Malaquite Visitor’s Center parking lot. We will have Friends of Padre board members there by 7 am that morning to start lining everyone up. There is no sign-up.
What if we don’t have 4-wheel drive?: We always do our best to ensure everyone gets a ride down the beach. You my be riding with someone you don’t know, but what a great way to make new friends! Show up early if you need a ride. Once the trucks are down the beach, it gets harder to find rides for folks.
What time is the cleanup over: We try to have everyone off the beach by 2 pm, at the latest. There will be t-shirts and food for our volunteers at the conclusion of the cleanup.
Is there a backup date in case of bad weather: No! This is a rain or shine event. The amount of planning that goes into this event will not allow for rescheduling. Please make sure to check the weather ahead of time and dress accordingly. We’ll also make weather announcements as the event draws near and we have a better idea of what to expect.
Please check back regularly as the event approaches for updates. And don’t forget to share! https://friendsofpadre.com
