Coffeepot Bayou Cleanup, 7 November 2020,
Coffeepot Bayou Watershed Alliance
Drafted by Walt Jaap
The mustering location was at the intersection of Coffeepot Drive and Oak Street NE, we set up tables and gear in the easement by the Masonic Home gate at 8:30 AM. The air temperature was 75°F, water levels between 9 AM and 12:00 PM were 1 to 2 ft above datum (NOAA Ports). Keep Pinellas Beautiful supplied buckets, trash pickers, trash bags, tools, supplies, liability waivers, a water cooler and canteens, shirts, and complimentary meal cards from Chick Fillet. Thirty-one people volunteered, 10 students, most of them were from Shorecrest School. A canoe and a kayak scoured the shorelines and a small jet-propelled powerboat took care of trash in the southern sector of Coffeepot Bayou.
My name is Charlene Agyemang and I am a Pinellas Access to Higher Education (PATHe) Counselor at St. Petersburg College.
PATHe is a collaborative initiative between the University of South Florida – St. Petersburg, and St. Petersburg College. This summer, PATHe is hosting a free virtual program from August 1-7, 2020 for rising juniors and seniors in Pinellas County called Virtual Discover Your PATHe.
The Virtual Discover Your PATHe program is a great opportunity for students to learn about opportunities available for them after high school. During various interactive workshops, they will learn about ACT and SAT prep, the college admissions process, financial aid resources, and more. They will also have an opportunity to connect with other local high school and college students. This program will also host several parent/family sessions on August 1st, which will focus on how family members can best support and prepare for the college journey.
Students interested in participating in the Virtual Discover Your PATHe can register and find additional information by visiting our website at http://www.usfsp.edu/discover
