By Staff | Sep 30, 2019

Coastal Watch will hold its annual fundraiser, The Launch, on Nov. 16 from 6 to 10 p.m. at The Community House on Sanibel. The evening will feature dinner, drinks, live and silent auctions, a 50/50 raffle and more – all for a good cause.

Event proceeds will support local conservation initiatives, such as the ongoing Bring Your Own Bag campaign. With help from local businesses and organizations, Coastal Watch distributes free reusable canvas bags at events and stores throughout the island. To date, over 19,000 bags have been distributed.

A new initiative will be launched in the fall to help the local community lead more sustainable lives. It came to Coastal Watch’s attention that best practices for recycling and yard waste disposal are not clear; to help out, “Bin it, Don’t Bag It” was created. Stay tuned for more details in the coming weeks.

Tickets are $100 per person and will include an annual membership.

For more information or tickets, call 239-472-8585 or visit sancapcoastalwatch.org/the-launch.

Coastal Watch operates as a branch of Sanibel Sea School to create and implement local conservation initiatives that promote and improve the future of marine resources and coastal heritage. Its goal is to increase awareness of the impacts humans have on beaches, water quality and marine habitats in the region and to help citizens become more effective stewards of the ocean.
