We’re teaming up with the Town of Hempstead Dept of Conservation and Waterways for this event. It’s Piping Plover season, an endangered bird that nests on our beach. Because they are protected, the town cannot use their machinery to clean up the beach during this nesting season time. So, we’re going to do a manual beach clean up to get keep things tidy, and keep the trash where it belongs, and not on our beach, where it also poses danger for those birds, and all other wildlife as well. All ages welcome with adult supervision.
Please bring your reusable water bottle to stay hydrated!

Thanks to everyone who came out to help clean the beach in East Atlantic Beach! Thanks to Assemblywoman Melissa “Missy” Miller and Councilman Bruce Blakeman for holding the event.
About 25 people collected 213.9 pounds(!) of trash and marine debris including a full lawn bag of recyclables, 5 full lawn bags of trash and assorted metal items and heavy wood debris.
Thanks to The Town of Hempstead for taking it all to its proper place.
Thanks to our volunteers Joan, Karin and Joanne who helped everyone get it done!
The top item-plastic pieces! Plus lots of balloons, cigarette butts, styrofoam pieces and assorted other items that just do not belong on our beach or in our waters. Great work everyone!
