Bolivar North Jetty Cleanup
The trash situation at the North Jetty on the Bolivar Peninsula is getting better thanks to previous cleanups but there is still a lot to pick up. Houston Audubon is planning a cleanup
Saturday February 2, 2019
from 9 AM to Noon
We will gather the trash and the fishing line that is often such a hazard to our local wildlife, and we could sure use your help. We will provide:
- Trash Grabbers
- Drinking water
If you plan to attend please wear sturdy shoes or boots that can get muddy or wet and wear clothing that will protect you from the sun and the mosquitoes (hat, sunglasses, etc.)
This event is open to everyone!
The North Jetty at the southeast end of 17th Street in Port Bolivar is adjacent to Bolivar Flats Shorebird Sanctuary and is a popular recreation destination. Unfortunately many people who use the jetty aren’t good about properly disposing of trash, and it winds up between the rocks of the jetty. High tides float the trash out of the rocks and from there into the sanctuary. It is easiest to get the trash when it is in the jetty, so if you enjoy doing much needed jobs, we need your help.
Meet us at the base of the jetty !!
And we will provide you with bags, trash grabbers, gloves and water. Houston Audubon will provide bags, gloves and water. Meet us on the beach at the vehicular barrier.
