Saturday Mornings at Lydgate

Saturdays 8:30 to 10:30 a.m.

Every Saturday morning from 8:30 until 10:30, at Lydgate Beach Park, community volunteers tackle beach clean up — clearing driftwood, washed up branches and marine debris to maintain the pristine quality of this popular swimming beach, loved by locals and visitors alike. All are welcome to participate. Snacks are served at 10:30. This weekly project is organized, in part, by the Friends of Kamalani. Wear shoes that can get wet or sandy and bring a hat, gloves, sunscreen and bottled water. Go to the protected rock wall swimming area and look for voluteers wearing yellow Beach Cleanup Team tee shirts. Participants are referred to the coordinator or assigned a task.

The Friends of Kamalani, a non-profit organization, focuses on Lydgate Beach Park, Kamalani Playground and Kamalani Kai (a kid-friendly beach park to the west of Kaha Lani Resort). For more information go to: https://www.kauaipath.org/kamalani
