World Oceans Day
Democrat Point
World Oceans Day

This Thursday, we'll be hosting a beach cleanup at Democrat Point in Robert Moses! All are welcome!

We all enjoy Long Island's incredible beaches in the Summer, so why not help keep them clean! If you're a fisher, surfer, or just a local who cares - stop by and lend a hand! Let's set an example to leave no trace this Summer.

How to get there:
If you have a beach access pass for a 4WD vehicle, feel free to drive on and meet us on the ocean-side as far west as you're allowed.
You can alternatively park at Robert Moses field 2 and walk west from the lot.
We'll be set up with a tent and WaxScrappler sign by the fence where off-road access ends.

Meet us there at 6:30 and we'll walk down to the point together, picking up debris along the way.

What to bring:
Good vibes

What we provide:
Garbage bags

Looking forward to seeing you all there!

These Lego pieces have washed up all over the world and pieces are still washing up.
