Bay Splash Events

Bay Splash events are smaller events throughout the year where we partner with other community organizations to raise awareness of our mission. These events are often outdoor events designed to connect more citizens to our natural resources. Many times, an organization approaches us and offers to host an event and donate a portion of proceeds to support our work for clean water, clean air, and healthy communities. We are very grateful to have such valuable partnerships in our community!

Are you interested in collaborating with us on a Bay Splash event? For more information, please contact Development Director Justine Herlihy at jherlihy@mobilebaykeeper.org or call 251-433-4229.

HOP IN THE BAY IPA

We partnered with Fairhope Brewing to launch the "Hop in the Bay" IPA in Summer 2018. This easy-drinking, seasonal IPA is served in several local bars and restaurants throughout the summer and a portion of proceeds benefit our work for clean water. 

 

 

 

The Big Float

The Big Float is a paddling event held in conjunction with SweetWater Brewing in conjunction with SweetWater's "Save Our Water Campaign". The purpose of this event is to connect more community members to our beautiful natural resources. In 2016, the event consisted of a two-hour guided paddle with WildNative Delta Safaris from Bluegill Restaurant to Whiskey Ditch. Following the paddle, we enjoyed lawn games, live music, and drink specials. This year, the event will take place on Saturday, August 18, 2018 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. on Fly Creek. Stay tuned for more details to come!

In 2015 and 2016, we partnered with our friends from Wintzell's Oyster House, Good People Brewing, and Gulf Distributing Company to organize a shrimp-eating contest with teams from Wintzell's, Mobile Baykeeper, and other local businesses to benefit our mission. You can't have great seafood without clean water!

Whole Foods 5% Day

In 2017, Whole Foods Market Mobile selected Mobile Baykeeper as the recipient of its 5% Community Giving Program. On this particular day, 5% of net sales from Whole Foods Mobile directly benefitted our efforts for clean water, clean air, and healthy communities. It was a great turnout and we were honored to be a part of such a wonderful giving program.
