We are so grateful to all of the volunteers and participants that made our first Big Calusa such a success! Please know that your efforts have helped make a difference in our community and local waterways – even inspiring other groups and families to partake in beach clean-ups and a kayak excursion to pick up trash in the Matlacha Pass Aquatic Preserve. We are deeply humbled by the support and passion of our friends and followers.
