Coastal Ambassadors

The Coastal Awareness Ambassadors group explores the possibilities of a clean ocean and conservation of our marine and coastal environments. This program is designed to teach 4-Hers about coastal environments and what we can do to protect them.

We support the "Stow It Don't Throw It" campaign by monitoring fishing line recycling stations around Camden County in cooperation with Coastal DNR. We utilize discarded tennis ball containers to create personal fishing line recycling bins and distribute these at local events and festivals. If you would like to donate empty tennis ball containers (with lids) or assist with this project, please contact Misty Tanner at the office. 912-576-3219 or
