SEBASTIAN – An 8th grader at the Sebastian River Middle School is organizing a Beach Cleanup on Saturday, March 31, from 9:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m. at Golden Sands Beach Park.

Michael Montalbano, 13, created a flyer and website to gather more volunteers from the community. The flyer says “Cowboys Care … Help us Save The Waves.”

“He loves our beaches, wanted to make it a cleaner place for everyone to enjoy and encourage others not to litter,” Julie Montalbano, Michael’s mother, told Sebastain Daily.

The cleanup is for Michael’s 8th Grade IB Community Service Project.
