International Coastal Cleanup 2019

Thank you for a succesful ICC 2019! (2)

On September 21st, 140 volunteers’ on-land and on-water joined the Bronx River Alliance in celebrating our annual International Coastal Cleanup (ICC) at Soundview Park. Some of our partners included NYC Ferry, REI, Friends of Soundview Park, NYC Parks, Con Edison, Fordham University, Anheuser-Busch and many others. Volunteers filled 50 trash bags with coastal debris and over 5000 pieces of trash. Volunteers found strange items along the shoreline, and had an opportunity to participate in a raffle sponsored by REI. Thanks to the volunteers, their efforts will have a local and global impact along the 600 mile stretch of the Long Island Sound!
ICC was supported by the Long Island Sound Study.
