Description

Bluff Point Cleanup
Sunday, September 29, 2019
10:00 am to 2:00 pm

You're invited to join Mystic Aquarium and community partners for an Ocean Ambassador's coastal cleanup at Bluff Point State Park. Our goal is to remove more than 1000 pounds of marine debris from Rhode Island and Connecticut shorelines before 2020 and we need your help!

Mystic Aquarium’s Animal Rescue Team responds to all stranded marine mammals and sea turtles along our local coastline and would like to invite you to join the over 500 volunteers who have already pledged to keep our shorelines clean and protect these amazing species!

Volunteers of all ages can choose to help for just a few minutes or spend the entire time cleaning the beach alongside our team. Each site will be completely stocked with safety and cleaning supplies, the only missing piece is you!

What if I know of a site that should be cleaned?
