About the event
Thank you for taking the time to sign up for our Earth Day 'South Side Sweep' Coastline Cleanup! We are so excited to make one big group cleanup effort happen on the 7-mile stretch of Kauaʻi's Southern Coastline with a few incredible community organizations like Kauaʻi Ocean Awareness, as well as, volunteer groups from local businesses committed to giving back on island like Seasport Divers, and Kauaʻi Sea Farm. This effort is being made possible from our incredible donors and indirect grant funds from amazing organizations including Kupaʻa Kauaʻi & the County of Kauaʻi Office of Economic Development, Kanu Hawaiʻi, and the Hawaiʻi Community Foundation -- Mahalo Nui Loa!
The goal for this cleanup is to cover as much ground (and water) as possible around the South side of Kauaʻi anywhere from Mahaʻulepu to Kukuiʻula Boat Harbor. The plan is to meet up as a group at Kukuiʻula Harbor at 10am to get organized, sign in, have some light breakfast snacks, and pule (pray). Then teams will grab their necessary cleanup gear and branch out to cover the heavily impacted marine debris areas around the South side. The purpose of this sign up form is to get an idea of how many volunteers we can expect for the day (how many spots we can coordinate to clean). If you and a group of friends/family would like to make your own team to cover a spot not already listed below, please let us know in the comments section. The more the merrier when it comes to cleaning up this approximately 7 miles of coastline of our island! The teams will then meet back at Kukuiʻula Harbor by 2pm to sort and weigh the marine debris found and compare notes with teams cleaning other spots around the area.
We will have snacks and refreshments provided to all volunteer sign-ups at the end of the day. Although there can be some pretty awesome surprises found from cleaning up the coastline within itself, each volunteer participant will also be entered into a free raffle for a chance to score some awesome gear and swag from our collaborators and partners.
Spots currently on the list to clean:
- Kukuiʻula Harbor *Underwater + Coastline*
- Koloa Landing (Hanakaʻape Bay) *Underwater + Coastline*
- Shipwrecks (Keoneloa Bay) *Coastline*
* This list will be updated as we receive interest to clean other spots on the South side. Please sign up to add a new spot below. *
