Today, Rockaway Beach buzzes with activity, particularly in the summer months, when all-seasons residents are joined by vacationers and surfers. Unfortunately, with heavy activity, trash builds up on the beaches and along the coast. Much of this trash consists of small pieces of single-use plastics and Styrofoam that threaten the health of the Atlantic and the marine species in and around it. In an effort, to keep Rockaway Beach clean, please join us in a cleanup to help preserve this New York treasure. This cleanup is a part of International Coastal Cleanup Day, which is a global volunteer effort to protect our world's oceans.
A special thank you to all of our partners: Rockaway Beach Civic Association, Ocean Conservancy, and NYC Parks.
