Get Dirty Helping With a Cleanup
  
- Deerfield Island Park hosts fifth annual waterway event -
  

BROWARD COUNTY, FL – Parks and Rec is looking for a few good kayakers and paddleboarders – okay, more like a hundred or so – to help with the fifth annual Earth Day Waterway Cleanup. The event will take place from 9AM to noon on Saturday, April 21st, at Deerfield Island Park (1720 Deerfield Island Park, Deerfield Beach 33441). Participants ages 6 and up will meet at the dock area at adjacent Sullivan Park, then help clean up the waterways around the island in honor of Earth Day, which is April 22nd.

The park is surrounded by the Hillsboro and Royal Palm canals and the Intracoastal Waterway, ensuring that the island attracts all sorts of trash and debris. Bring your own kayak or paddleboard or, if you don’t have one, rent one when you get there. If you don’t want to participate from the water, you can also volunteer to help out with event logistics such as registration, debris collection from the shoreline, and other activities.
  
For further information, call Quiet Waters Park at 954-357-5100. Deerfield Island is accessible via Broward County Transit Route #48.
