Pura Vida Divers is teaming up with Keep Palm Beach County Beautiful, Palm Beach County Department of Parks and Recreation, and Divers Direct for the 2016 Great American Cleanup on Saturday April 23rd. Our location is Phil Foster Park!
This is a FREE event! Divers, surfers, and beach goers are all welcome to attend.
All divers need to confirm participation before the day of the event and will be required to bring their diver certification card, a dive flag float, and a timing device as well as sign an Underwater Liability Release Form. All non-divers participating in the Phil Foster Park Cleanup will be required to sign a liability release at the registration table.
To thank everyone for participating, everyone who turns in a completed data card will have their trash weighed for a chance to win a free boat pass for a 2-tank dive trip aboard Sirena, or a half day surfboard or paddle board rental. The individual who collects the most trash (by weight) will be our winner and may choose their prize.
Do you need CAS or Community Service Hours? You can earn up to 5 CSA or Community Service Hours for participating in the day’s events. Don’t forget to bring your forms. We will be happy to sign your service hour sheets!
Itinerary for the day:
8:15am: Meet at the picnic tables near the playground for registration and an underwater/beach cleanup orientation. The underwater/beach cleanup orientation will begin promptly at 8:30am. We will provide cleanup materials and hand out Great American Cleanup t-shirts (donated by Keep Palm Beach County Beautiful) and goodie bags to those who attend while supplies last. Supplies are limited, so be sure to get there early.
9:51am High tide: We recommend you begin you dive around 9am. Divers who attend the underwater/beach cleanup orientation and return their collection bag filled with trash, will receive a voucher for a free air tank rental or air fill from Pura VIda Divers.
11:30am: Please bring your collected trash and completed data cards back to the picnic tables. Everyone who turns in a completed data card will have their trash weighed for a chance to win a free boat pass for a 2-tank dive trip aboard Sirena, or a half day surfboard or paddle board rental. The individual who collects the most trash (by weight) will be our winner!
Please RSVP by Monday, April 18th. This will help to ensure that we have enough t-shirts and cleanup supplies for everyone attending.
