Announcing a new Meetup for Sierra Club- Hartford chapter!

What: Beach clean-up day!

When: Saturday, September 25, 2010 10:00 AM

Where: (A location has not been chosen yet.)

Hey folks! Please consider joining in the international effort of people around the world to clean up our coastlines.
The month of September there are lot of events going on around the state to clean our beaches so that our oceans will be fresh and safe for us to play in! Please consider joining for a few hours at a clean-up day at the beach nearest you. Everybody benefits and you'll feel good about having done something positive for yourself and our environment!


The International Coastal Cleanup is September 25, 2010, but beach cleanups happen all year long.

Save the Sound is Connecticut’s coordinator for Ocean Conservancy’s International Coastal Cleanup (ICC), the world’s largest single-day volunteer effort of its kind. Save the Sound will be supporting cleanup events throughout the entire season. We can use volunteers at any of the cleanups listed below.
