BEACH SWEEP: LABOR Of LOVE

Mermaid Cottages announces our next BEACH SWEEP!

It’s a true Labor of Love, so join us on Sunday, September 4, 2011 from 9 AM-10:30 AM.

Please meet at the Tybee Visitors Information Hut near the Tybee Pier. Gloves, trash bags and trash grabbers will be provided.

Mermaid Cottages offers our guests the opportunity to combine their vacation travel with volunteering on Tybee Island. Participating in various local projects alongside our Mermaids and Mermen allows our guests to “live like a local” and gives you a chance to give back to our coastal community.

Keeping our island neat and clean isn’t just important to us, but for all of our wonderful wildlife and beach ecology, too.

It’s LABOR DAY weekend, so come be with the Mermaids (and Mermen!), residents, guests and friends and let’s Keep Tybee Tidy!

 

 

 

It’s VOLUNTOURISM at its best!  Y’all comin’?
