3 To Do: Beach clean-up, healthy living
1. Saturday: Beach clean-up
From 8 a.m. until noon, Saturday, Sept. 15, Friends of Tigertail in conjunction with Collier County's "Keep Collier Beautiful" is taking part in the International Coastal Clean-up to remove debris from beaches worldwide.
Southwest Florida beaches have suffered in recent months. Tigertail has been spared the worst of red tide devastation, but trash still builds up, spoiling the beauty of the park.
Bags, gloves, and water will be provided, though we encourage bringing your own reusable bags or buckets and water bottles to cut down on waste.
There will be Keep Collier Beautiful T-shirts for participants, as well as certificates of appreciation and community volunteer hours for school children. Bring the family, wear shoes that can get wet, as well as a hat for sun protection.
Meet at the kiosk at Tigertail Beach, and help to revitalize the beach while having fun with your neighbors.
2. Healthy living program
From 9:30 to 10:30 a.m. every Tuesday and Thursday, Zen Center, 1250 U.S. 41 N., Suite 205, Naples. Nora Van Houten will teach a “Sit, Stretch & Restore” yoga class. Drop-in fee is $7.
Van Houten is a registered nurse, certified Kripula yoga and meditation teacher. She specializes in leading active adults safely and effectively to practice physical yoga postures, breathing exercises and relaxation techniques for integrating body, mind and spirit.
3. Parallel Harmonies: Art and Nature
