Make the sound a better place! NSPN and Salem Sound Coastwatch are combining forces to clean up our islands in the sound. The goal of this event is to clear marine waste from the Gooseberries, Coney and Great Haste. Most likely, some paddlers will clean up the beach and collecting trash into bags while others shuttle the waste to a waiting skiff. Our plans will need to be flexible to find out what works best and to stay safe at all times.
We think we will need about a dozen paddlers who are comfortable with typical landing conditions on these islands, and some who are OK with approaching larger craft safely on the water.
More details will be provided closer to the date.
In case of bad weather, this activity will be rescheduled to the following day, 9/26.
If you're an NSPN member and you'd like to help, please supply your info at this form, and we'll get back to you later in the season as soon as we know more!
