Corporate Social Responsibility - McCoys Creek Cleanup

                     

The IECA is proud to partner with St. Johns RIVERKEEPER as the corporate social responsibility initiative this year and help the local community with an in-person ceanup of a local triburary, the McCoys Creek. Their mission is to "To defend the St. Johns River and advocate for its protection." The St. Johns River is the longest river in Florida, flowing 310 miles north from its headwaters at Blue Cypress Lake in Indian River County to its mouth where it empties in to the Atlantic Ocean east of Jacksonville. Nearly 16% of the state, the St. Johns River watershed covers an area of nearly 9,000 square miles and is home to over five million people. 

This year we will be doing an in-person activity, joining the Rising Tides young professionals for their monthly cleanup on McCoys Creek. Cleanups are rain or shine so dress appropriately!
