UPDATE: Shelter Island Coastal Cleanup Day for tomorrow, Saturday, is postponed

According to Mashomack: Our plans for tomorrow’s Coastal Cleanup at Mashomack have been blown out with Hurricane Lee’s winds.

For safety reasons due to the forecasted high winds and tides, we are going to postpone the cleanup to next Saturday, 9/23, from 9 a.m to 11 a.m.

Storms usually blow in more trash/debris, so I’m sure we’ll have our work cut out for us next weekend. It will also be the first day of Autumn, so we can work to start the new season off with a clean coastline.

If you’re able to join us on the new date, please let us know Email [email protected]

Below is our orignial story, and the information will apply for next week:

Saturday, Sept. 23, will be Shelter Island’s Coastal Cleanup Day. You can be part of this effort, by joining Mashomack’s Coastal Cleanup, from 9 to 11 a.m.
