Hours: 10:00 am - 2:00 pm
300 Tower Rd., Naples, FL 34113
In an effort to help restore the Rookery Bay estuary to its pristine condition, Red Bull is partnering with Rookery Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve to host a Mangrove Clean Up on the original date of the Red Bull Privateers SUP Festival, Saturday, November 18. The Red Bull Privateers SUP Festival that was originally scheduled for November 18 at Cape Romano has been moved to February 10, 2018 due to the effects of Hurricane Irma. The storm made landfall at Marco Island and the Ten Thousand Islands area, the waterways flowing through the mangrove forests are still littered with uprooted trees, mangrove branches and trash blown in from nearby urban areas and marinas. Stand Up Paddlers and kayakers from all over Florida are joining forces to paddle through the mangroves and help pick up trash, debris and downed branches that have clogged up the waterways and damaged the marine habitat. SAFETY IS A PRIORITY! PLEASE HAVE PROPER FOOTWEAR AND GLOVES - NO BARE FEET ALLOWED. Click on the website link in this event listing to register. Join the Red Bull Privateers to get this job done! A food truck will be on site after the cleanup.
Admission: Free but registration required
