Waterway Clean-up Events

Whether you need service hours or just like being outside near the water, there are several events during the year that you can attend to learn about water conservation and to help keep our waterways clean. Here are just a few. Check our calendar for more.




Ocean Conservancy LogoThe Ocean Conservancy is a non-profit that is focused on environmental advocacy group that uses science-based solutions to help develop U.S. policy relating to our oceans. The Broward County Coastal Cleanup is an annual event sponsored by the Ocean Conservancy. Participants can choose from 13 different locations hosting cleanups throughout the county.



Broward County LogoWater Matters Day is a Broward County sponsored event that is educational and fun. Booths are set up throughout a local park. Kids can use a special event passport to visit booths, complete activities and qualify for a free tree. Along the way there are useful give-aways, like toilet leak detection tablets that we give away at our City of Fort Lauderdale booth. There are also crafts to be made, animals to see, and great organizations offering after school activities and camps.

Water Matters Day

Water Matters Day is celebrated right here in Fort Lauder dale along with Broward County, other local cities, organizations, and businesses. It is a day that citizens are educated on the importance of water conservation, Florida friendly landscaping, pollution prevention, and much more. The day is full of activities, plant giveaways, entertainment, and informative sessions that the whole family can enjoy and benefit from.
