Received this in an e-mail today and wanted to let fellow 2cooler's know that wanted to participate. Who is in ?
The 2013 crab trap cleanup is scheduled for Saturday February 16th. We encourage you to put together a group from your chapter and participate in the effort to remove the abandoned traps in our bays. Below you will find the contact numbers for the TPWD staff that are in charge of these areas. They can inform you where the closest dumpsters are for you to deliver your collected traps. This has been an extremely successful program and we would like to continue the tradition. Thanks.
This year’s closure will begin on February 15 and will run through February 24th. Our main event day will be on Saturday the 16th. The site list has not been finalized at this time but will be similar to last year’s list with the glaring exception of Conn Brown Harbor in Aransas Pass which is undergoing renovation and will not be open to the public until sometime in March or April. That site will likely move to Ransom Channel Park Public Ramp (Unattended site) also in Aransas Pass. Folks can contact their local coordinators as listed below or myself for more information and assistance. And they can email: firstname.lastname@example.org
