2) Saturday Sept. 27, 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. Help clean up the Suwannee River after all the summer activities at Manatee Springs. Bring your kayak, canoe or just walking shoes and help make the Suwannee River beautiful again by picking up trash in the river. If you don’t have a canoe or kayak and still want to go by water, we can provide a canoe or kayak, but they are limited, so please reserve your vessel (see contact). We will shuttle people from Anderson Outdoor Adventure up to Clay Landing to launch and float down while picking up trash along the way. There will be a boat on the water to collect full bags.

A barbecue lunch, trash bags, trash pickers and water will be provided, along with free admission to the park. Meet at the Manatee Springs Concession — Anderson Outdoor Adventure at 9 a.m., for registration.
