MAY 31 – Weeki Wachee Springs Cleanup

The Rotary Clubs of Spring Hill and Brooksville will have a lyngbya cleanup on Saturday, May 31, 2014 at 5 p.m. at Weeki Wachee Springs State Park, 6131 Commercial Way, Weeki Wachee.
Volunteers are needed for this community effort to get rid of the algae from the water. Special rakes are used to remove the algae in a careful manner. Each rake full of lyngbya helps clean the water of pollutants. Lyngbya is an algae that can cause serious damage to the springs and its inhabitants. It interferes with fishing, boating, swimming and the health of manatees and other aquatic life.
The cleanup will last about two hours. For information about the project, contact Doug Brainard at (352) 442-1156 or [email protected]
