Description

Mystic Aquarium's Ocean Ambassador Coastal Cleanup at East Matunuck State Beach
Saturday, October 19th
9:00am-11:00am

You're invited to join Mystic Aquarium and Surfrider RI for an Ocean Ambassador's beach cleanup at East Matunuck State Beach. 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!

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