Camp Bayou Waterway Service Project

The Camp Bayou Service Day volunteers accomplished an impressive task- over 85 lbs of trash was collected within 3 hours by just 10 people. Half the group were in kayaks and picked up along the scenic 2.5 mile Little Manatee River canoe loop which is used for environmental education programs at the Center, as well as for local recreational activities such as fishing. The other half of the group collected along the shore and roadway leading to the water where river netting activities for youth groups often takes place.
This was an NCLI - related event. Camp Bayou supports and encourages all children and their families to get out and enjoy the outdoors, while learning a bit about our world in the process!
