Volunteers Needed for Annual Manhasset Bay Beach International Coastal Cleanup
North Hempstead, NY – The Town of North Hempstead is pleased to once again partner with the Manhasset Bay Protection Committee for a volunteer coastal cleanup on Saturday, September 25 at 9:30 a.m. at Baywalk Park in Port Washington.
The coastal cleanup aims to prevent trash from entering the ocean, raise public awareness about the issue of ocean pollution and teach people that their actions on the land have an impact downstream. Additionally, as part of the cleanup the volunteers will document what they collect to help identify what pollution is an issue and to help devise a strategy to deal with it at the source.
Volunteers are asked to bring drinking water, old clothes, protective shoes that can get wet, hats, sunscreen and bug repellent. Latex gloves, trash bags, drinks and snacks will be provided at the event.
This volunteer event is suitable for all ages. To register please contact Sarah Deonarine at firstname.lastname@example.org.
