May 19: ‘Hands Across the Sand’ with Florida Oceanographic at Stuart Beach


From Florida Oceanographic: Join Florida Oceanographic on Saturday, May 19 at Stuart Beach for Hands Across the Sand and say no to offshore drilling! 

Meet our team at 11:45 a.m. at the beach access across from the Chef Shack. We will spread out along the shoreline and hold hands for 15 minutes starting at 12 p.m. 

Hands Across the Sand / Land, founded in 2010, grew into an international movement after the BP oil disaster in April of that year.

People came together to join hands, forming symbolic barriers against spilled oil and to stand against the impacts of other forms of extreme energy.

How to #JoinHANDS

Go to the event location at 11:45AM,  rain or shine.

Join hands for 15 minutes at 12:00 PM, forming lines in the sand, or on the land, against dirty fuels. Say yes to clean energy and renewables.

Leave only your footprints. In addition, consider getting involved in a local organization that supports clean energy.

Event Day Tips

  1. Use only approved locations. This includes beach access and parking,
    plus parks and recreational areas.
  2. Create a long line, or as many lines as you wish.
  3. Be courteous and respectful to those who disagree with your view.
  4. Please steer clear of bird nesting areas (refer to Audubon’s recommendations)
