Help clean up marine debris from the beautiful and remote Big Shell Beach! The 23rd annual Billy Sandifer Big Shell Cleanup will be held on Saturday, February 24th, 2018. Organized by the Friends of Padre, a local group of anglers and other supporters of the park, this event is a great way to see some of the down-island areas of the park while helping to make a difference. To participate, meet at 8:00 a.m. at the Malaquite Pavilion parking lot. Arrive early! A FREE lunch will be provided after the event and the park entrance fee will be waived for the clean-up. Four-wheel drive vehicles, flatbed trailers for hauling trash in and out of the work area, and working volunteers are needed. Walking volunteers are welcomed and those without 4-wheel drive vehicles will be afforded transportation to and from the work area. Those who have 4-wheel drive vehicles but are unable to pick up trash are most welcome to aid in hauling volunteers. The event doesn’t re-schedule and will take place rain or shine.
