Cornell Cooperative Extension of Suffolk County’s Marine Program, National Park Service, The Village of Patchogue, Greater Patchogue Chamber of Commerce and surrounding Patchogue River businesses invite the public and local businesses to participate in the third annual Patchogue River Clean-Up as part of National Public Lands Day. On Saturday September 22, the Patchogue community will join thousands of volunteers around the country in making their public lands a better place.
Start the day off at 10am at the Patchogue-Watch Hill Ferry Terminal for important information about the day's activities, clean-up locations, and pick up your clean-up supplies. Learn about the natural resources of the area and enjoy music after the clean-up at Drift 82 at 12pm. At Drift 82, participants are invited to win raffles and see how much garbage was collected. Both land-based and boat-based clean-up options will be available and individuals with private vessels are encouraged to join.
Drift 82 will be hosting a lobster mac’n cheese contest with the proceeds going to next year’s Patchogue River Clean-Up, and support for Cornell Cooperatives water quality testing on the Patchogue River. Come celebrate the success of the clean-up, and enjoy good food and music!
The Patchogue River Clean-Up aims to connect the Patchogue community to a valuable resource in their backyard through education and public service.
