We’re so grateful to the 70 volunteers who cleaned up Cedar Grove Beach this past Saturday. Along with 75 bags of trash, we also removed a large slab of styrofoam, a plastic sword, an abandoned shopping cart, some dilapidated lawn chairs, an empty propane tank for grilling, and a piece of an old lobster trap from the beach.
Ever thankful to our program partners NRPA and Partnership for Parks, NYC Parks, and DSNY for helping make this cleanup a success. We’d also like to recognize with extra thanks all the dedicated students and those who helped out from Monsignor Farrell High School, Staten Island Tech, Tottenville High, IS 7, PS 42, Staten Island Borough President Vito’s office, and Staten Island Museum. And as always, much thanks goes out to CM Carr and CM Joe Borelli for sponsoring this stewardship event.
