The Tampa Bay Estuary Program is heading to the Sunshine Skyway for our final workday this season. For this workday we'll be cleaning up trash and debris that washes onto the shoreline at Blackthorn Memorial Park.

We'll be working with our friends from Keep Pinellas Beautiful to make this area beautiful and trash-free again.

The Blackthorn Memorial Park is on the St. Petersburg side of the Sunshine Skyway–so there is no actual street address. MAP

The Tampa Bay Estuary Program will provide lunch for all volunteers.
