Glen Cove, NY - September 3, 2014 - Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano today announced the 29th Annual International Coastal Cleanup, sponsored by the American Littoral Society and the Friends of Garvies Point Museum and Preserve, will take place on Saturday, September 20th from 12:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. Volunteers of all ages will meet at Garvies Point Museum and Preserve located at 50 Barry Drive, Glen Cove, NY to clean up Garvies shoreline as participants in the International Coastal Cleanup sponsored by the American Littoral Society and the Friends of Garvies Point Museum and Preserve.

The International Coastal Cleanup is more than just a “beach cleanup.” The debris will be itemized and recorded on data sheets for the American Littoral Society which coordinates the Coastal Cleanup in New York State. The American Littoral Society will send the information to the Ocean Conservancy for analysis so that scientists all over the world can help develop effective national and international pollution control policies. According to the Ocean Conservancy, 648,015 volunteers in 92 countries picked up more than 12.3 million pounds of trash on the 2013 International Coastal Cleanup.

Volunteers should wear old clothes, work shoes or boots (no sandals) and bring work gloves if you have them. Drinks will be provided. Afterwards, everyone is invited to a very special LIVE animal program thanks to Tackapausha Museum and Preserve. Also enjoy juice and cookies sponsored by North Shore Audubon Society and the Friends of Garvies Point Museum and Preserve. Any amount of help will make a difference!

If you have any questions or need directions, please call Veronica Natale or Nancy Caporale at Garvies Point Museum at: (516-571-8010/11) or via e-mail: vnatale@nassaucountyny.gov or ncaporale@nassaucountyny.gov.
