John and his team join the Florida Oceanographic Society to clean up beaches in Martin County

(Martin County, FL) - Johnny's Marine Service proudly participated in the 3rd Annual Treasure Coast Waterway Cleanup on Saturday, July 24. John and his team joined the Florida Oceanographic Society at its staging site on Stuart Causeway. Ellie Van Os, Director of Education & Exhibits at the Florida Oceanographic Society in Hutchinson Island outfitted them with bags, gloves, and supplies. She then instructed them to hit the waterways!

The Johnny's Marine Service Team spent the morning cleaning Tiger Shores Beach, Virginia Forrest Beach, Jensen Beach, and Joe's River Park in Stuart. John and his group of coworkers and relatives dodged raindrops and sea turtle nests to use this opportunity not just to pick up trash and debris, but to take in the natural beauty of the Treasure Coast. No signs of oil were found.

Once they filled all of their bags, the team went back to the Stuart Causeway to join Ellie, from the Florida Oceanographic Coastal Center. Together they sorted through the trash, separated out all of the recyclables and took an account of the debris found. Ellie talked to the kids about what they had found; debris ranging from old shoes to an old antler to even an old egg casing from Whelk Snails, a good sign of a healthy environment. One very large piece of debris was found on Tiger Shores Beach and was reported to the authorities for pick up at a later date.
