Realty 1st is happy to help The Alabama Coastal Cleanup this year.  We believe it is imperative that our beaches continue to stay beautiful.  We will be working across the road from Turquoise Place on Cotton Bayou.  This area is a habitat for all types of wildlife.  Last week I was over at this location and saw a Coyote family.  This property touches Cotton Bayou and there are many bird nests and the fishing off of the beach is wonderful.  If you are interested in helping out, please visit 

The Coastal Cleanup crew and volunteers have removed over 1 million pounds of debris from 3900 miles of Alabama Coastline.

A job well done!
