12th Annual Rookery Island Cleanup

  • Doc's Seafood and Steaks 13309 S Padre Island Dr Corpus Christi, TX, 78418 United States (map)

Rookery Island Cleanup has been rescheduled October 27th

9:00 am to noon

Doc’s Seafood and Steak

Come volunteer to help clean up our area rookery islands!  


Every year the Coastal Bend Bays & Estuaries Program along with Doc's Seafood and steaks, Texas Parks & Wildlife, US Fish & Wildlife Service, the TX General Land Office, and others, hosts a cleanup to remove fishing line, plastic, and other harmful trash from islands in the Laguna Madre where birds like herons, egrets, pelicans, and skimmers nest and raise their young.  

The event will be on Saturday, October 20th, from 9 AM - 12 PM, at Doc's Seafood & Steaks. 

Please bring appropriate clothing for being in the sun, shoes and pants that can get wet and muddy (you may have to wade through knee-deep water), and re-usable water bottle.  After all, we don't want to create more plastic trash at a trash cleanup!  After a couple of hours of cleanup, we are all treated to a free hot dog lunch!
