Spring Coastal Cleanups

Our coastline is one of our most precious resources and all of us must chip in to keep it pristine.  SoundWaters is leading the charge, but needs everyone’s help.  We host seasonal clean-up days when we will provide you with gloves and bags to walk the public shoreline and pick up human debris.  We weigh and catalog everything collected before disposing of it in the appropriate manner.  Coastal clean-ups are ideal for friends, families and teams.

All ages are welcome and please wear sturdy shoes and clothing you don’t mind getting dirty and/or wet and bring garden or work gloves.

Dates:

Sunday, March 3 @ Greenwich Point
2:00pm -4:00pm
Check-In at the Old Barn & Cafe

Saturday, April 13 @ Cove Island Park

    A lot of conservation is about not making things worse: We limit carbon emissions, eliminate single-use plastics and reduce our footprint. While these guidelines are important and impactful, they’re also kind of a bummer. Which is why we can all get excited about something that, rather than just limiting the problem, actually has the potential […]
