World Ocean Day

Keep Golden Isles Beautiful volunteers participate in events like this previous World Ocean Day, along with staff and volunteers from other organizations, including One Hundred Miles, UGA Marine Extension and Georgia Sea Grant, SSI Sea Turtle Project and Green Scene of Coastal Georgia.

Make a difference in the Golden Isles as a volunteer site leader at Keep Golden Isles Beautiful community cleanup events. Site leaders represent KGIB at organized cleanups and give direction, distribute supplies, register volunteers and provide staff with post-cleanup reports. KGIB provides all of the needed supplies, arranges for debris removal, and organizes/publicizes the cleanup efforts.

In order to extend community reach, Keep Golden Isles Beautiful is offering a volunteer site leader training session and welcomes all who want to learn more about this unique volunteer opportunity. Attendees will learn more about the ins and outs of KGIB park/roadside/beach/marsh cleanups and have an opportunity for questions to be answered.

“With only two KGIB staff members, volunteer site leaders are crucial to increasing the number of community cleanups we host annually,” said KGIB Executive Director Lea King-Badyna. “Volunteer site leaders can lead just one or multiple cleanups. The more KGIB volunteer site leaders, the greater number of community cleanups and coverage we can provide.”

The training session will be held at 6 p.m. Aug. 27 in the upstairs meeting room of Old City Hall, at 1229 Newcastle St., in Brunswick. Potential site leaders are asked to pre-register to for training supply purposes. All ages and abilities are welcome and encouraged to attend.
