Shoreline Cleanup a Success

In a recent Weekend Edition, I mentioned that the annual Shoreline Cleanup was happening. Well, it did (I was there!), and it was a great success! Green Shores, the organizers, sent out a message to participants, which I will share with you below:

Green Shores NYC thanks everyone who helped make our 5th ANNUAL SHORELINE CLEANUP in Astoria Park a success!

Our partner organizations—the Astoria Park Alliance, Partnership for Parks, and the New York City Department of Parks & Recreation—helped the day run smoothly. Volunteers from Forest Hills High School, International High School and members of the Astoria-Long Island City community braved the rain to join us. We filled over 70 bags of trash in only a few hours!

You can watch coverage of the cleanup on NY 1 here.

Thanks to all who participated!

I'm really disappointed I was unable to attend, but the good thing is it seems like there is always a next time.
