Mentor Headlands Beach Clean-Up

Start Date

This is the tenth year that East Shore will be participating in the International Coastal Cleanup by picking up small bits of trash at Mentor Headlands Beach Park.  These small bits of plastic are especially dangerous to fish, birds, & other wildlife because they are mistaken for food. Not only does the plastic affect our local area, but it also washes out to the sea via the St. Lawrence Seaway.
 
Come join us at Mentor Headlands Parking Lot 1 a little before 11 am on Saturday, September 21, and spend some time in community at the beach while helping our environment.  Previous participants have described it as both an educational and Zen experience.
 
Dress for the weather & wear an East Shore or environmental T-shirt if you have one.  Bring gloves and a pail or bag for collecting trash, as well as your beverage, utensils, lunch, & something to share, as we will gather at 12:30 to picnic together.
 
If you use a smart phone, please consider downloading the Cleanswell App to help us report to the Ocean Conservancy on what we find.  Go to oceanconservancy.org/cleanswell
