NUHS Florida students worked with community groups and other volunteers to clean up historic Fort De Soto park last weekend as part of Keep Pinellas Beautiful’s Mid-Summer Coastal Cleanup.

The event was part of a worldwide effort by thousands of volunteers collecting millions of pounds of litter and debris on inland roadsides, coastal areas, inland lakes and rivers. The cleanup encompassed spaces outside of coastal areas, since trash often originates inland and is moved by wind and rain to our waterways.

National University’s students have a proud history of community service, and the university enthusiastically supports our student and faculty volunteer efforts in the St. Pete and Tampa Bay communities.
