Event Spotlight: Beach Clean Up at the Bluff

Help support the 9th annual clean up.


Last year, the Ocean Conservancy reported that nearly 600,000 people picked up more than 9 million pounds of trash along 20,000 miles of coastlines. Items picked up included enough clothing to outfit the entire audience of the Olympics opening ceremony; enough food packaging to get takeout for lunch, breakfast and dinner everyday for the next 858 years; and enough light bulbs to replace every light on the Eiffel Tower. And the organization reported that beverage containers collected could yield $45,489, if recycled.

On Sunday, local volunteers will work to clean up the beach surrounding Kings Park Bluff, but they need your help! Each volunteer receives a certificate for community service.

Sept 30 is a Sunday. So on which day will this event take place?
Pamela Schmidt September 25, 2012 at 02:02 PM
Yes, you are correct! It is on Sunday September 30th at 10am sharp! We meet at the flag on the lower level parking lot. All volunteers please arrive promptly, and sign in on the sign in sheet. Since it is a documented cleanup, I begin by reviewing the data cards that need to be filled out while picking up debris. All volunteers need to wear appropriate clothing for the weather; it is not cancelled unless there is severe weather. Please bring garden gloves if you have a pair. All volunteers will receive a certificate. I will review additional information about finding needles or green pipecleaners- I need to send these to Washington, D. C. Thanks!! pam
