Beach Day: Rockaway Beach Cleanup with Surfrider Foundation NYC

Organizer

Join environmental non-profit Surfrider Foundation NYC in Rockaway for a beach cleanup!

As the weather warms, New Yorkers flock to the beaches, leaving behind lots of trash.  Additionally, plastics bags, garbage and micro plastic wash in from the ocean. Let’s work together to make sure that trash doesn’t make it back into our waterways, into marine ecosystems, and into our food!

WHAT TO BRING

We will provide gloves and bags. Please wear suncreen, sand-friendly shoes, and clothing that can get dirty. Reusable water bottles are *highly* recommended. Bathrooms and food will be available at a nearby concession, should you need food or drink during this time.

HOW TO GET THERE

Getting here is super simple from Manhattan.  You can take the A train straight to Beach 67th Street, hop off and walk toward the ocean.  If you’re driving, parking will be available on the street.
