Over the past 25 years, Ocean Conservancy’s International Coastal Cleanup has become the world’s largest volunteer effort for ocean health. Nearly nine million volunteers from 152 countries and locations have cleaned 145 million pounds of trash from the shores of lakes, streams, rivers, and the ocean on just one day each year. Volunteers will meet on Tybee Island near the Pavilion to form smaller groups that will clean up trash on different areas of Tybee Island’s beach. Each piece of trash is recorded on data sheets that are sent to the Ocean Conservancy for input into their international data bank.

Hurricane season is upon us once again, and this one came out swinging. With Irene charging toward the East Coast, talk of hurricane preparedness is everywhere. According to the latest models, the Savannah Area is out of Irene’s projected path, and all we should see is some heavy rainfall throughout the weekend. When faced with the possibility of a hurricane, we hear the same sage advice from our local news networks. Filling up our vehicles with gas, buying an ample supply of bottled water and non-perishable foods, and locating and protecting important family documents are all great ideas, and are imperative to riding out the storm. After the basic survival precautions are taken, there are several other ways to protect yourself during the storm, whether or not you choose to evacuate.

This past weekend’s Black Tie Beach event hosted by Club 51 Degrees along with South Magazine and other sponsors was a major success. The event took place on the Tybee Island pier on Sunday, the 26th, and featured tons of events, games, and giveaways as well as a red carpet to take pictures of those who attended the event. After the party wrapped up on Tybee, it moved to the Crypt Pub on Broughton and well into the night. Check out our Scene of the South segment to see photos from Sunday’s event.
