#DontTrashLISound Beach Clean-up
Thursday, August 8, 2019

10:00am to 12:00pm

You're invited to join Long Island Sound Study, Connecticut Sea Grant, Save the Sound, New England Interstate Water Pollution Control Commission and Mystic Aquarium for the second annual #DontTrashLISound Beach Clean-up! This year, Lighthouse Point Park in New Haven, CT is the kick off location for the month-long campaign aimed to ditch the single use plastic habit and continue to protect Long Island Sound from harmful marine debris. Taking place over a 2 hour period, participants can choose to learn from our community partners and help out for just a few minutes or spend the whole time cleaning the park. Our meeting point will be completely stocked with safety and cleaning supplies, the only missing piece is you!
