Alabama Coastal Cleanup
The Wind and Water Learning Center is an official Cleanup Zone for the Alabama Coastal Cleanup. The largest volunteer event in the State of Alabama happens annually on the third Saturday in September from 8 am to Noon. Volunteers in the W&WLC's cleanup zone focus on the waters and shorelines of Wolf Bay, Bay La Launch, and Ingram's Bayou. Arrive by boat, kayak, bike, or car! Want to clean up by kayak but don't have one? Call and ask about borrowing some of ours for the event. "Picking up litter benefits you, your community, and the Gulf. More than 100,000 volunteers have assisted in this event since Alabama joined the International Coastal Cleanup in 1987. We are grateful to the many helping hands and hearts who have pitched in to benefit our priceless natural resources" (Alabama Coastal Cleanup, 2022).
In celebration of Halloween, the W&WLC hosts a sunset costumed paddle the second Friday evening in October. Bring your own paddle craft or rent a kayak from the W&WLC for the event. Stay afterwards for a costume contest and a festive bay front party with live music. There are prizes from local businesses for best costumes and decorated kayaks, SUPs, and canoes. If you don’t want to go out on the water with us, you’re welcome to join in on the fun after the paddle.
