Volunteers netted about 102 pounds of trash during the Sept. 18 cleanup at Ocean Beach Park in New London, one of more than two dozen CT Cleanup events across the state on International Coastal Cleanup Day.
You don’t have to live near the beach to do your part on International Coastal Cleanup Day this Saturday Sept. 19. Picking up and documenting litter anywhere in the state that day will contribute to keeping all our lands and waterways clean, including Long Island Sound.
Abandoned boats, broken lobster traps, discarded tires and all types of other trash aren’t just eyesores on Long Island Sound’s beaches, coves and channels. They’re also hazards to wildlife that can impede navigation and threaten human safety and health.
