The Litter Gitter is a program of Matanzas Riverkeeper that takes members of our community out on the river to remove trash from our waterways and to learn about the issues surrounding marine debris and litter.
The namesake of the program is the Litter Gitter II: a bright yellow, 24- foot Carolina skiff, specially equipped for removing large volumes of debris. With Captain Adam Morley at the helm, the Litter Gitter program works to ensure that our local waterways stay clean and healthy while giving volunteers an opportunity to get their hands dirty and to do their part.
Please note that due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have some additional safety measures in place.
- We are not currently hosting public trips, only private groups
- Groups will be capped at a maximum of 6 participants
- Volunteers are required to wear masks or maintain at least 6-foot spacing outdoors during check-in and check-out
- Volunteers will not be permitted to participate if they have had any symptoms associated with COVID-19 or been in direct contact with anyone who has in the past 2 weeks
