Help keep Garden City Beach beautiful!

As most of our visitors are aware, one of the many features that makes Garden City Beach so beautiful is the adjoining waters of Murrells Inlet. This tidal estuary provides a wonderful place for boating, fishing, crabbing, swimming and just plain sightseeing, and is a big reason that our area is so popular. However, like many natural areas with close proximity to large populations, Murrells Inlet is not immune to litter. Luckily, for the past 18 years, a group of concerned citizens has found a way to keep Murrells Inlet beautiful, and actually have fun doing it!

Spring Tide started small back in 1991, but has grown into a full day's worth of fun. The annual cleanup is timed to occur at or near high tide, to allow easy and safe access to high areas of the marsh that might otherwise be damaged by foot traffic. This year, that happens to fall on Sunday, April 26 at 8:30AM. Canoes, kayaks and trashbags are provided, and volunteers are sent off from Morse Park for a morning of exploring and cleanup. At 12:30PM, the crowds meet back at the Hot Fish Club for the Great Murrells Inlet Chowder cook off! (There's only one hitch: no work, no eat!)

Take it from one who has done it several times: it's actually a lot of fun, and is a great way to explore some out-of-the-way creeks and estuaries that you might not see otherwise. (Plus, the food is fantastic!) For more information, call Murrells Inlet 2020 at (843) 357-2007.
