Thames River Basin Partnership

International Coastal Cleanup Day (ICCD), taking place on Saturday September 21, is one of the world's largest annual preservation and protection events and volunteer efforts for our ocean, waves and beaches. It is a global movement that encompasses 6 million volunteers in 90 countries and across the United States.

Hear what our Partners at The Nature Conservancy has to say about trash picked up along the shores of Long Island Sound.

Please consider joining in the effort to clean up our local beaches this September. If no one has organized an event at your favorite beach, please consider becoming an organizer.Each September and October volunteers comb #LISound beaches for trash. What do they find?

Break the #SingleUsePlastic Habit. #DontTrashLISound.
