Coastal Clean-Up and Stewardship Day

Date: September 10, 2016

Time: 10:00am-12:00pm

Location: Sears Island, meet at kiosk

Friends of Sears Island will be hosting a Maine Coastweek beach clean-up. All trash collected will be weighed, recorded, and the data will be sent to the Ocean Conservancy to be added to the international ocean trash index. Families are encouraged to attend, as we will have several activities especially for kids. Children who attend this program and help with the beach clean-up will receive a Friends of Sears Island patch and a certificate of recognition for their efforts. For anyone that likes to bike, it would be helpful to have some group members ride to the far end of the island and check the beaches furthest from the parking lot. Trash bags and gloves will be provided.
