We saw this flyer posted at Valentino Pier the other day and wanted to spread the word. Tuesday, August 16th from 5pm-7pm volunteers are needed to clean-up the pier and park. For anyone who is free that night and would like to help out their community mark your calendars and RSVP here. Clean up supplies and snacks for the crew will be provided. More info below.
A variety of marine species call Upper Bay home, and recreational fishing is common along the waterway. Historically, Upper Bay has been a major shipping route through New York. Sadly, the bay and surrounding waterfront is polluted by plastic bags, wrappers, household trash and many other things that get thrown or blown into the channel.
This after-work cleanup will feature games and prizes, and steve’s authentic key lime pies will be serving up sweet and tasty treats for volunteers! Stick around after the cleanup for Red Hook Flick’s screening on the pier of pitch perfect.
