An enviornmental action group has planned a Superstorm Sandy cleanup of Wantagh's Jones Beach this Saturday.
Volunteers from Ocean Conservancy are heading out to locations around New York and New Jersey devastated by the Oct. 29 storm including Jones Beach, which suffered extensive flood damage. Ocean Conservancy and its select corporate partners, LandShark Lager and Altria, will be hosting the beach cleanup as part of “For the Shore”, a coordinated volunteer effort organized by Clean Ocean Action.
Ocean Conservancy officials said they are asking for volunteers to join Saturday's cleanup effort at Jones Beach, which is scheduled to last from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. The cleanup crew will be meeting at Parking Field 2 in front of the consession stand at 10 a.m.
Volunteers are asked to dress appropriately for the cold weather, wear durable boots/shoes and be prepared to get dirty. Gloves are required. Refreshments will be provided.
