The city of Fort Pierce has a rich history with our coastline and it’s imperative that we keep our beaches clean. Curtis has routinely participated in beach cleanups throughout the Treasure Coast.
Why do we need to cleanup the Beaches?
It’s important to clean up the trash around the beaches because it it detrimental to the local marine life. Litter, such as cigarettes, straws, plastic, bottle caps, wrappers and fishing line, can be swallowed or entangle the marine animal causing severe harm and death. Lures, hooks and other fishing equipment also poses a threat to the thousands of people who enjoy our beaches daily.
