2022 CT Coastal Cleanup planned; 2021 data released

Data from 2021 International Coastal CleanupOrganizing has begun for the annual International Coastal Cleanup 2022, which takes place each year during September and October and is sponsored by the Ocean Conservancy.

In Connecticut, Save the Sound will celebrate its 20th year as the Connecticut Coordinator for the event. It has started to register cleanup captains for sites in Connecticut, and is especially interested in expanding cleanups to inland parts of the state.

Anyone interested in hosting a cleanup is urged to contact Annalisa Paltauf, Save the Sound’s coordinator for the cleanup, at apaltauf@savethesound.org before June 10.
