Sandy Point Cleanup September 12

Please join us this Saturday, Sept. 12th from 9 am – 12 pm for a Litter Cleanup at the Sandy Point Bird Sanctuary, in West Haven, as part of the Ocean Conservancy’s “International Coastal Cleanup”.

This is a critical conservation effort to remove trash from an recognized Important Bird Area. A clean site prevents predators, attracted by food litter, from becoming accustomed to visiting Sandy Point, one of the prime sites in CT for Piping Plovers and other beach-nesting bird species. Plus: Our data will help scientists fight ocean litter! Bring work gloves, sunscreen, and water. Meet at the Morse Park parking lot (immediately east of Chick’s Restaurant/, 183 Beach St., West Haven, next to skate park). Leader: NHBC Conservation Chair Winie Wirth, 203-859-2971 or wirthwitte@att.net. Thank you!
