Beach Sweep is this Saturday!
DeBordieu/Pawleys Island Beach Sweep is this Saturday, September 18.
Beach Sweep/River Sweep is South Carolina's largest one-day volunteer cleanup event of its kind. Every 3rd Saturday in September thousands of South Carolinians clear beaches, rivers, lakes, marshes, and swamps of aquatic debris.
DeBordieu Colony owner/volunteers are encouraged to “Bring Your Gloves, Wear your Walking shoes, and Meet at the Pavilion Rec Center at 11:30 am."
The cleanup, organized by the S.C. Sea Grant Consortium and S.C. Department of Natural Resources, has taken place annually since 1988 - when Sea Grant first started it. The Sweep takes place in conjunction with the International Coastal Cleanup, coordinated by the Ocean Conservancy. Once the Sweep is over, the Ocean Conservancy tallies all of the debris data. This data helps us learn the sources of litter so we can stop pollution before it starts.
Aquatic debris is a danger to our wildlife, our safety, and our economy. DeBordieu, Pawleys Island, and the entire coast of South Carolina is so very fortunate to have such a vast amount of wonderful aquatic resources.
Beach Sweep is a great way to care for those natural resources. If you are a DeBordieu property owner and wish to sign-up, please contact:
Geoff Groat, or the
DCCA Adminstration Office,
Oh, and by the way, while you’re out there on that beautiful beach, please let me know if you have questions about any of the great opportunities to own oceanfront property at DeBordieu! Or feel free to search the website,
There has never been a better time to consider a purchase at DeBordieu!
