July 5th Post Fireworks Clean Up in Rosemary Beach
Even with the fantastic crew that cleans the beaches every night here in Walton County, there is still a lot we can do to help keep the beaches safe for sea turtles. Bring your own water bottle, hat and sunscreen as you'll be walking the beach, picking up trash, filling in leftover holes and knocking down leftover sandcastles. If you need work gloves - bring them! Location: Main St and East Water St, Rosemary Beach
