Results from June 21st Beach Clean -Up: Thanks Volunteers!

Thank you to all CMRC volunteers and Americorp members who helped clean the Memorial Field beach at Jamaica Bay. We collected over 700 items, mostly beverage bottles (over 300) and plastic bags.

Everyone worked through the heat, found lots of horseshoe crabs, and enjoyed each other's company. Some of the highlights (or lowlights) of what volunteers found included lots of large sytrofoam pieces, a fridge, vinyl material, fishing gear, and a tire.

The next CMRC Beach Clean-up will be held at the Big Egg Marsh beach on August 23rd. Please contact the CMRC for more information at if you or your groups would like to participate!
