Free instruction and educational information will be provided.

At 8:30 a.m. Sunday, the Surfrider Foundation Coastal Georgia Low Country Chapter and Tybee Beautification Association will team up for a beach sweep at the Tybee Pier. Individuals and families are encouraged to attend. Bags and gloves will be supplied, and Green Life Space will provide recycling for the event.
