SANIBEL, Fla.- On Friday, October 25th, a group of student volunteers from Florida Gulf Coast University will be conducting a monofilament and debris clean-up underneath and around the Sanibel fishing pier in coordination with Keep Lee County Beautiful's Monofilament Madness and the Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation (SCCF).

In order to provide a safe environment for the divers, the Sanibel fishing pier will be closed from 7:00 AM until 2:30 PM. The goal is to perform maintenance and recover monofilament fishing line and other debris that could cause harm to wildlife.

For more information or questions regarding this closure, please contact the Natural Resources Department at (239) 472-3700.
