Join the collaboration and celebration to connect our natural and human communities for sustainability, and go for a ZERO WASTE GOAL with the May River Cleanup!
Inclement weather prevented the Earth Day Celebration from taking place, the cleanup time frame was shortened, a launch from Palmetto Bluff was canceled. However, through the diligent efforts of approximately 250 local residents, the cleanup was still a success. Volunteers set out in kayaks, boats, and on foot and collected a total of 1691 pounds (.85 tons) of waste from the May River and roadsides in the surrounding Old Town Bluffton community.
