Volunteer with Plastic Free Gulf Coast this Summer at the first annual Jackson County Sand Jam!!

The Jackson County Recreation Department is sponsoring a family-friendly sand sculpting event on Saturday, June 12 from 8 am - 2 pm at Front Beach. The event features sand sculpting competitions focused on the land and sea turtles native to Mississippi and is designed to raise awareness of the Leave No Trace principles on our beaches.

Plastic Free Gulf Coast needs 5 - 10 volunteers to assist with set-up, registration, event management, community engagement, and staffing the water refill stations (an alternative to single use water bottles!)
