Ask tourists or future residents why they’re attracted to Florida, and the answers usually are: white sand beaches, lakes for boating, rivers for kayaking and our natural springs. Yet, many of our waterways are littered with bottles, cans and other debris. The good news: Trash is a people problem, which means we are also the solution.

Join thousands of Florida REALTORS® around the state from July 4 – 11 for the Florida Waterways Clean Up Effort! RASM will be partnering with Keep Manatee County Beautiful for a designated group clean-up day on July 11 at Coquina Beach in Manatee County from 9 – 11 a.m. Sign up to volunteer here!

To follow social distancing guidelines, participants will be separated into small groups along the beach. Participants will receive a REALTOR® mask. Please register on this portal so that we know how many volunteers to expect and how many masks to order.

If you can’t participate during our group event, we encourage you to participate on your own! Find a waterway near you, clean it up, and share your progress on social media using #CleanUpFloridaWaters.
