Packery Flats Clean Up

PACKERY FLATS CLEANUP
OCTOBER 3, 2020 – 9AM – 12PM

To celebrate National Estuaries Week the Coastal Bend Bays & Estuaries Program will be cleaning trash and harmful debris from the tidal flats and marsh habitats along two miles of Highway 361, from the Packery Channel bridge to the Kates Hole Access Parking Lot.  With increased recreational crowds looking to #coastaldistance this summer, and the storm surge from Hanna, the area is in need of a good cleaning!

Due to COVID we will be doing this a little differently. We will require registration, and groups must either be family groups or groups of 6 people or less. On the day of the clean up, you will drive through to pick up a bag of clean up supplies and instructions on where to go clean, and where to leave your trash. The drive through pick up location will be located at the main Packery Flats Parking Lot, on the west side of Hwy 361 about 1 mile north of Zahn Rd. Each clean up bag will contain shirts, water bottles, and buffs for everyone registered, as well as litter bags, gloves and snacks.
