BEACH CLEAN UP - On the third Saturday in September, in synchrony with the National Coastal Cleanup Week, we join forces with Franklin County and Wakulla County to pick up our state's shoreline. We focus our efforts along Mashes Sands, St. Mark's Wildlife Refuge, and Alligator Point Beaches. Because we have been doing this for over 5 years, we decided as a society last week to "Adopt a Beach" in Alligator Point, Florida. If you fish along Alligator Drive or come to relax along the beach in this community, you will see our Adopt the Beach Sign along the Rock Break Wall where a local Girl Scout Troop has installed Wooden Trash Cans (Bear Proof!) along the shore. Our sign will be installed on February 27th, at 10 am if you want to see it "uncovered"! Come on out to the Fire Station on Alligator Drive to help with the winter clean up on the sign installation day, February 27th, Saturday, at 10 am. Lots of free give aways, event t-shirt, and help for the local community. Register here for the day and your free event t-shirt.
SEASTAR DISSECTION - In April every year, we visit a local K-12 college preparatory school and work with the 5th graders in learning Echinoderms! If a future elementary school science teacher is in your future, or if you just cannot wait to test your patience with the enthusiasm of many questions at once....sign up to help us out. We will need 1 BBB member per 4 students, 20 students per classroom and 3 different class periods from 9 to 11:30 in the morning. Look back to see when our date will be set, but we are leaning towards a Thursday as that is when many have the time block free. The school provides us free lunch in their cafeteria with the kids afterwards.
THE HOMELESS SHELTER - There is a real need on our community for those that have lost their homes. We enjoy making sandwiches to pass out to the mobile homeless at their new site downtown. We made sandwiches in January, and will likely do this again before the full spring weather returns to help our homeless in the city of Tallahassee.
