Tappen - Sea Cliff Beach Cleanup Scheduled for Sept. 26

The Coalition to Save Hempstead Harbor invites everyone who treasures Hempstead Harbor to help clean up the Glenwood Landing - Sea Cliff shoreline on Saturday, September 26, from 9 A.M. to Noon.

Volunteers will comb Tappen and Sea Cliff beaches for debris, which will be collected and weighed before being transported to a waste facility. The data obtained will be forwarded to the Ocean Conservancy for inclusion in a massive database useful to researchers.

The effort, sponsored by the American Littoral Society and the Ocean Conservancy, is part of a worldwide event known as the International Coastal Cleanup. The Coalition has been the Beach Captain for Tappen and Sea Cliff beaches for the last 16 years.

Meet at the entrance to Tappen Beach or the concession stand at Sea Cliff Beach (rain date, Sunday, September 27). For more information, contact Barbara Karyo (759-9361) or Barbara Segal (676-3032).
