Get on the water for our Hillsborough River Clean-Up

Tampa Bay Kayak Anglers hosted the Hispanics for our Environment Hillsborough River Cleanup on April 20, 2024 at Lowry Park. Volunteers work together on and off the water to collect debris in and along the Hillsborough River.

We need kayakers, shore walkers, and check-in personnel for this river & park clean up volunteer opportunity. Whether you participate on the water or land, there is plenty of debris to be cleaned! Volunteers are encouraged to bring their own kayaks. If you are able to bring your own, please make sure to indicate it on your registration form.

TBKA is dedicated to supporting the beauty and conservation of Tampa Bay waterways. In partnership with Tampa Bay WaterKeep Tampa Bay Beautiful, and Tampa Bay Estuary Program,  this clean-up will focus on bringing together the local Hispanic community and encouraging environmental stewardship.

This event is over. Thank you for your participation!

All TBKA-provided kayaks have been claimed.
