Join us for Grabbers for Growlers, a fun-filled service project dedicated to cleaning up our beloved natural spaces as part of the Adopt-An-Area program. Merritt Island Wildlife Association and Playalinda Brewery are teaming up to clean up Areas 10 and 11 on Black Point Wildlife Drive, along with the horseshoe crab beach on West Gator Creek Road.

Gather your friends, rub on some sunscreen, and get ready to make a difference. We’ll be wielding grabber tools like eco-ninja, conquering litter so it doesn’t become troublesome for the wildlife who call the Refuge home. But wait, there’s more! After a successful clean-up mission, we will gather at Playalinda Brewery Hardware Store location to quench your thirst with some refreshing craft brews (beers and root beer) and a delicious lunch. Refill a Growler or purchase one to go to be entered in our special sustainability raffle drawing.

It’s the perfect way to get to know the tap room team, celebrate giving back to nature, and converse with fellow nature enthusiasts. Are you ready to grab some trash and tip some growlers? Register today for Grabbers for Growlers and let’s make a positive impact on our community, one piece of litter at a time!
