PENSACOLA, Fla., (June 8, 2016) – MarineMax Pensacola at Bahia Mar is asking for volunteers to join the MarineMax team at the Bahia Mar Marina on Saturday, June 25, 2016, where they will lead a Bayou Chico Trash Round-up event in conjunction with the Bayou Chico Association. The event will kick off at 9:00 a.m. with boats leaving the marina at 9:30 a.m. Trash bags and dip nets will be provided for each boat. At 11:00 a.m. MarineMax will host a cookout for all the participants as they return.

“We are all excited to have this opportunity to help restore Bayou Chico to a more natural state,” offered Mark Breton, General Manager MarineMax Pensacola at Bahia Mar. “It’s a chance to give back to the community we serve and the beautiful environment we all share.”

The Bayou Chico Association is dedicated to the preservation and restoration of Bayou Chico. A community-based, non-profit organization, the Bayou Chico Association is made up of area residences, businesses and boat owners working together to effectively identify and solve environmental problems threatening Bayou Chico. They strive to accomplish these goals through public education, action and advocacy.

“Cleanup supplies will be provided. If you do not have a boat, please call to reserve a spot to participate in the cleanup. Lunch will be provided at the docks following the cleanup,” added Breton.
