The City of Wilton Manors is thrilled to once again participate in the Annual Waterway Cleanup. This year marks the 40th anniversary of the Broward County Waterway Cleanup, organized by the Marine Industries Association of South Florida and Marine Industry Cares Foundation. Wilton Manors is proud to have been part of this event for all 40 years. With more than 30 participating locations, the Waterway Cleanup is the County’s largest and longest-running environmental event aimed at bringing together thousands of volunteers to help collect trash and debris from our waterways, rivers and canals.
Wilton Manors volunteers will focus efforts on Colohatchee Park and Boat Ramp, a 8.5 acre community park, which includes 7 acres of mangrove preserve, and the 7 miles of waterways of the Middle River that makes us the “Island City.”
The City will provide refreshments for all volunteers along with t-shirts, trash bags, boat wash, gloves, and cleaning supplies, while supplies last. Wilton Manors also encourages those with motorboats, canoes, paddleboards or kayaks to come volunteer. The City will help match those who want to clean the Middle River with those who have space available on their boats. After the cleanup, in appreciation of all the hard working volunteers, the Trash Bash will take place from 1:30 p.m. - 3:30 p.m. The Trash Bash site is to be determined. Tickets to the Trash Bash will be provided at Colohatchee Boat Ramp when you arrive.
Each participant must sign the WATERWAY CLEANUP WAIVER. Parents of minors must sign the waiver for their child. Service hours are also available for school.
