Volunteers help keep St. Johns River beautiful

Published February 15, 2008
Thousands of commuters a day pass over the St. Johns River and admire its beauty, but few think of Watershed Action Volunteers, an organization that works to keep the river beautiful.

The volunteer program of the St. Johns River Water Management District helps keep the river, and the waters that flow into the river, clean and healthy.

It has dozens of partners throughout the 18 counties in east Florida where waters drain to the St. Johns and other rivers and seeks to connect citizens from all walks of life with water resource and conservation related volunteer opportunities.

Among the most visible public programs of the organization in Volusia County are the cleanups of the St. Johns, Halifax and Indian rivers that have been organized every year since 1995.

This year, the cleanup of the Halifax and Indian rivers is planned for March 3. The St. Johns River cleanup is set for June 7.
