  Here is a message from Linda Etchells, Friends Board member and member of our Stewardship Committee:

"On Saturday June 1st, the Friends of the Savannah Coastal Refuge, will be doing a Land & Water Clean up of Pinckney Island. This clean up is being organized by Connie Terrell, Twila Gray, Linda Etchells and the Friends Group. There will be 2 clean ups, 1st one in the morning starting around 8:30 am, which will be a land cleanup coordinated by Connie & Twila, at low tide to get at areas that collect lots of trash. The 2nd part of the clean up will be a water clean up launching from the private landing on Pinckey Island starting at 2 PM. We will need help with shuttling the kayaks back to the launch as space is limited. I can carry 3 kayaks on the trailer and 2 on top,which includes my own kayak. I could also supply 3 kayaks to volunteers, if I can get help from others with shuttling kayaks and drivers. We will be doing a high tide clean up in the surounding marshes and shorelines in that area. For more information or to Volunteer you may contact:

Connie Terrell at 705-6105 or cter@hargray.com for the Land Clean up in the morning and also if you would like to assist us in the afternoon with the trash the kayakers pick up on the water.

Linda Etchells will be coordinating the kayakers  and on-water clean up. To Volunteer for that or to use a free loaner if available, at 784-2249 or swampchicks@aol.com.

There will be extra water, snacks, gloves & trash bags provided, you will need to bring bug repellant and wear sunscreen and old sneakers or shoes, no sandals or flip-flops.

Let's clean up the trash on and around Pinckney Island together on the 1st!


Hope to see you all out on Pinckney Island on Saturday June the 1st!
