Contributed by: Don WinnerBy DON WINNER for Panama-Guide.com - Received today via email: "Dear Litter Picker-Uppers, Sunday, September 26 is Beach Cleanup Day in Panama. There will be volunteers working beaches all around Panama. It is sponsored by Panama Audubon, Panana Verde, Pro Mar, and Ancon. There are others, as well. I have volunteered with Panama Audubon to make a video document of their activities at Costa del Este. This will be produced to be used in their existing school program on the environment. All of us know that one day of cleaning a beach will not solve the problem. We hope to increase awareness, while realizing the lifetime of changes that will be needed. Panama Audubon will be at Costa del Este with activities running from 8:30am to 11:30am. Mangroves are a source of life and protection ... keep them free of contamination. Marco, Los Altos de Cerro Azul"
Question - Where Exactly?: Costa del Este is a big place. Is there a specific location where people will be meeting? Please provide a telephone number or email address for the coordinator of this activity. Also (FYI) high tide on Sunday morning, 26 September 2010, will occur at 5:15 am. Sunrise that day will occur at 6:07 am. Low tide will occur at 11:30 am. So, the litter picker-uppers will have no water to deal with, and mud flats for your imagery.
