Event description

Description

Join the team at Vanderbilt Financial Group as we kick-off Earth Week with a beach clean-up in our own backyard of Jones Beach State Park. According to research by the Ocean Conservancy, 8 million metric tons of plastics enter our ocean each year on top of the estimated 150 million metric tons that currently circulate our marine environments. We're eager to roll up our sleeves and do our part in helping ensure our oceans become more healthy for future generations.

Join us! This event is open to the general public, as well as friends and family of Vanderbilt staff. We will meet at Field 4 of Jones Beach State Park at 9:30am.

Biodegradable, disposable gloves and trash bags will be provided at the event. Lunch will be served at a nearby location (within walking distance) from 12-1pm.

Parking Note: There is no fee to enter/park on a weekday until after Memorial Day.
