Beach Cleanup Day!

October 2 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Please note, this event is for registered for Nature Initiative members only. To learn more about our youth program, click here.

In partnership with volunteer organizations and individuals around the globe, the International Coastal Cleanup® (ICC) engages people to remove trash from the world’s beaches and waterways. Thanks to volunteers around the world, the ICC has become a beacon of hope, leading and inspiring action in support of our ocean. Since its beginning, more than 17 million volunteers have collected more than 348 million pounds of trash.

In honor of International Coastal Cleanup Day, the NYS Sea Grant is hosting a beach cleanup at West Meadow.  We’ll be heading out with buckets, grabbers and data sheets to record which types of marine debris we collect. As an educational outreach tool, we will weigh the amount of debris accumulated at the end of the activity and discuss impacts on the marine environment. Join us to fight for trash free seas!
