    • 10:00 AM
    • Stepp's Towing; 5116 Shadowlawn Ave, Tampa

    Join your fellow Nauti-Mates as we clean up the float after the St. Patrick's Day Parade. 

    Please note that cleanup usually takes about one hour, but those who show up on time are guaranteed a minimum of two hours volunteer credit.  

    • 04/20/2024
    • 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM
    • Florida State Fairgrounds, 4800 US Hwy 301, Tampa, Fl 33610

    The Florida Learning Garden, a project of Keep Tampa Bay Beautiful in partnership with the Florida State Fair Authority, is a permanent one-acre interactive educational experience.

    Florida Learning Garden center is asking for volunteers to assist in cleanup, mostly weeding. This is a great opportunity for those that love outdoor gardening.

    The garden features raised beds, hydroponics, a Florida-Friendly Walking Trail, rain gardens, over 75 types of trees, an interactive greenhouse, the Humana Educational Pavilion for presentations, sensory gardens, butterfly gardens, composting system, gazebo and the Cargill Windmill. From ‘right-plant-right-place’ to best practices for water conservation.

    You will not only get 3 volunteer hours but a great learning experience. 

    • 05/04/2024
    • 10:00 AM - 1:00 PM
    • 440 Falkenburg Rd Tampa, Fl 33619


    In addition to adoption, Hillsborough County Pet Resource Center investigates cruelty and neglect complaints, enforces animal-related laws, and provides dog licensing and pet microchip services.

    We will not be working with the animals themselves as their volunteers actually go through training to handle them. Instead we will be doing a much needed project before the busy time of June and July.

    At this time I am not sure of what type of project we will be doing but it could include painting,  building,...I will post in April. 

    All volunteers must complete a waiver (attached) and bring it with them. If you plan on bringing an older child let me know and I will forward children waiver to you.

    All volunteers will earn 3 hours for this event and if you have any spare blankets, towels, dog or cat toys, food to donate they will accept graciously.

    • Key West

    Ahoy Nauti Mates!

    It's time once again for the annual YMKN trip to Key West for Hemingway Days. 

    To keep things simple and allow for maximum flexibility, the Krewe does not manage this event, i.e., you need to make your own travel arrangements and lodging reservations. Typically, whoever goes will stay in touch via text or Facebook Messenger.

    Where to Stay (or try to get close by):

    Rose Lane Villas and Old Towne Manor

    Options for travel to Key West:

    This part is up to you depending on your preference and budget.  You can drive, fly or take the ferry from Fort Myers.

    Flights: From TPA, United and Silver have flights on the 20th and 23rd.  From PIE, Allegiant offers flights, but their schedule is limited so you'd have to fly on the 21st and 24th.

    Ferry:  There is a ferry from Fort Myers to Key West almost every day.

    • Bradenton
    For those not going to Key West but who want a fun-packed weekend of Krewe shenanigans….

    This is an Inter-Krewe Council sponsored event held every year that attracts over 350 Krewe members from the 65 krewes that belong to IKC.  

    This year’s event will be held in Bradenton (we buy out the whole hotel).  More details to come as they are released.  

    This event sells out every year so check back soon for more information.

    The party starts Friday night and wraps up Sunday morning.

About us

Ye Mystic Krewe of the Nautilus is a 501c3 organization dedicated to having fun while promoting philanthropy, environmental awareness and conservation of our beautiful Tampa Bay Area.  We do this through participation in the Gasparilla parades and related events, as well as a variety of hands-on activities with our charitable partners. 

Our mission is to promote Florida environmental awareness and conservation through friendly partnerships, education, charity sponsorship and community service. We volunteer and participate in various clean-up and conservation projects in the Tampa Bay area.  We also raise funds for the 1 Voice Foundation in order to enhance current programs for children & families fighting pediatric cancer.
