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!
