As a part of International Coastal Cleanup, Be a Good Egg NYC is taking part in a beach cleanup at Orchard Beach on September 20th. Garbage on the beach attracts animals such as gulls, foxes and raccoons that will readily prey on beach-nesting birds and their young. This beach clean-up will make a huge difference to beach nesting and migratory shore birds! Be a Good Egg NYC is looking for volunteers to help out at Orchard Beach on September 20th.
Volunteers can meet at the Orchard Beach Nature Center at Section 2 (the North end) at 10 am. We’ll be clearing the shore of Twin Island N of the boardwalk. Supplies for the cleanup will be provided.
