Wantagh, NY - September 22, 2016 - Senator Michael Venditto (R, C, I-8th Senate District), in partnership with the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation, recently sponsored a Beach Cleanup at Jones Beach State Park.  The event was part of the 31st annual New York State Beach Cleanup and was funded and coordinated by the American Littoral Society.

Over 300 children and adults came to volunteer and helped remove approximately 400 pounds of litter and garbage from the Jones Beach shoreline.  Jones Beach is one of the most widely utilized State Parks in New York with 6 to 8 million people visiting the park each year.

“It was great to see so many children, families and community organizations, from across Long Island, volunteer their time to help clean up debris along the beach and shoreline.  We have some of the most beautiful beaches right here in our backyard, and it is of the upmost importance that they are kept clean and safe for us to enjoy today and in years to come.  Thank you to everyone who participated,” said Senator Venditto.
