United By Blue teamed up with REI and Randall's Island Park Alliance for a cleanup of Randall's Island/ Ward's Island. The surrounding waterways consist of salt marshes and freshwater wetlands which provide a precious habitat for wildlife and a large variety of recreation areas for sports, concerts, biking and running.
With help of 70 volunteers, we were able to haul 869 lbs. of trash from the shoreline including a crab trap, folding chair, and a giant block of Styrofoam.
