Join CCSO In Keewaydin Cleanup

Grab your sunscreen and walking shoes and join the cleanup on Keewaydin Island on Aug. 28.

For the second year in a row, the Collier County Sheriff’s Office Marine Bureau and the Collier County Marine Alliance will hold a cleanup of the environmentally sensitive island between Naples and Marco Island.

Free transportation to the island is being provided by the sailing vessel Sweet Liberty, which will depart Naples City Dock at 8:30 a.m. and return from the island around 12:30 p.m.

This is a great way to enjoy this pristine stretch of coastline while helping to keep it clean.

Space on the Sweet Liberty is limited to 30 passengers. To reserve a spot on the boat, send an e-mail to, or call 239.530.9850. Make sure to include the names of all volunteers and contact numbers.

Bottled water will be provided.
