Ways to celebrate Earth Day and make a difference!
Peconic Bay Keeper’s is hosting a “Virtual Clean Up”:
Join PBK for a “Virtual Cleanup Event”. This could be something as simple as picking up an extra piece of trash along your favorite beach, stretch of roadway, or along a woodland trail. The choice is yours and remember that collectively, our actions make a big difference! If you are unable to get outside, that’s ok too. Now is a great time to renew your personal commitment to protecting our environment be it by reducing plastic waste, planting a garden, or eliminating the use of toxic products in your home and landscape. If you are able to join us in our cleanup efforts, please follow the guidelines below:
- Practice social distancing at all times (at least 6ft) and respect all public closures.
- Protect personal safety by wearing brightly colored clothing along roadways, wearing gloves, and avoiding any hazardous items.
- Dispose of any items collected properly!
- Be sure to report your efforts by clicking here so we can tally our results!
