West Meadow Beach: Stony Brook

June 21 Wednesday 9:44 PM
June 23 Friday 11:34 PM

Our primary goal is to get as many hands on deck at West Meadow Beach to help us put out 500 tags!

We expect the HSC's to be out in big numbers with coming Full Moon cycle - so, the Tagging Blitz is on next week!

Experienced volunteers really help and bring friends! To participate go to:

Click on the top link to documents. Download and fill out two forms: the volunteer form and the adult or youth risk waiver. Please bring these with you the night of your volunteering.

Arrive at West Meadow Beach 1/2 hour before the time of the count to get organized. Directions are on the website.
