UPDATE, Sunday March 3:
It’s a beautiful day for a clean up! Collection areas will be primarily along the shorelines of the Cove, Sound and Eagle Pond, as areas along the roadways are limited due to snow cover. The sun is shining brightly now and it is high tide, so we are hoping for some more melting and increased access. Remember work gloves, bucket, waterproof boots and warm clothing!

Join The Fight Against Plastic Pollution and head to Tod’s Point on Sunday March 3 for the annual beach cleanup. Last year volunteers were overwhelmed by the amount of trash collected, including a great deal of plastic: 400 Plastic bottles, 1,000 Plastic bags, 1,500 plastic bottle caps and 1,000 plastic straws.
This year’s clean up is Sunday, March 3 from 2:00 – 4:30pm.
Meet in front of the Old Barn (first concession stand). Wear warm outdoor clothes, high waterproof boots. Bring work gloves, collection bucket with handle, garbage picker (if you have one), reusable cup.
