A group of community residents teamed up with Shoreline Restoration Services, I.CARE and founders Mike Goldberg and Kylie Smith, as well as Coastal Waters Revitalization Inc. for a shoreline cleanup on the oceanside, off the Old Highway in Islamorada, on April 18.

A debris pickup to celebrate Earth Day, the group collected a ton of debris during the morning at the village preserve at MM 86. Buckets for the cleanup were provided by Islamorada Pool Company.
