Clinton Celebrates : International Coastal Cleanup
– submitted by Dana Skidmore

On Saturday, Sept. 21st, the Clinton Land Trust, in conjunction with “Save the Sound”, hosted a local beach cleanup at the Town Beach. The event ran from 8-11am and a cookout was enjoyed after for all the volunteers. Many students from all of the 4 Clinton Public Schools were in attendance. In fact, there were more than 100 hundred people who attended the event!

With gloves, garbage bags and data sheets they were ready to go! The most common piece of garbage was plastic.  This is the material that hurts the most marine life because it does not biodegrade.

All of the data collection sheets will be sent to the State Capital so that a statewide tally can be made. We were all amazed to find out that the total amount of trash collected weighed over 600 lbs! Volunteers left with a feeling of satisfaction – enjoying a beautiful day and being part of a community effort to preserve our beautiful beach.
