On Saturday morning, 110 incredible volunteers helped clean up Dorothy Fitzpatrick Pier at Lemon Creek Park. We removed 50 bags of trash, three large wooden crates, giant ropes, a mattress, a kitchen sink and even a sea turtle skeleton. Council Member Joe Borelli and his team not only helped sponsor this event but came out and helped clean themselves.
Our program partners: the Natural Resources Protection Association, City Parks Foundation, United Activities Unlimited, New York Cares, and Staten Island Zoo helped all helped assist in making this cleanup a success.
Many volunteers attended from local schools including IS 7, Staten Island Tech, Monsignor Farrell High School, St. Joseph’s by the Sea and Tottenville High School.
