PANAMA CITY BEACH, Fla. (WMBB) – If you’re looking to start the New Year by giving back to the local community and helping to keep the beaches beautiful, you’re in luck! Keep PCB Beautiful will be hosting a beach cleanup at Russell Fields City Pier from 10:00 am to 11:00 am on New Years Day.

All cleaning materials will be provided to attendees, and you do not need to confirm your attendance to attend.

“After New Years Eve there is a lot of debris on the beach from fireworks and celebrations, so we are looking to clean that up and start the New Year in a positive way,” the spokesperson said. by Keep PCB Beautiful, Kim Christian.

In August, the group announced their desire to create a coloring book to engage the youth of Bay County, now the coloring book is complete.

The name of the book is ‘Don’t Throw Litter Where It Splashes’ and the aim is to encourage children in the area not to throw litter in an effort to protect marine life and teach their friends and their families to do the same.

“The hope is that if children see their parents accidentally throwing trash, they can correct them and educate them that even a little trash can harm marine life,” Christian said.

The coloring book features original drawings of Bay County children ages 7-11.

“What’s exciting is that we left the pictures as the kids drew them. If they had any misspelled words, we left them that way, ”said Keep PCB Beautiful president JoAnn Weatherford.

Books are completely free and can be found at Panama City Beach Town Hall, the Visitors Center, and other local businesses.
