The Marine & Environmental Research Institute and Blue Hill Heritage Trust invite you to join them Saturday, September 16th for a Beach Cleanup Day at Carter Nature Preserve on the Cross Road in Surry. Be a part of the Ocean Conservancy’s Global Trash Free Seas day, and Maine Coastal Cleanup Day, by helping to clean this beautiful property which is under conservation with BHHT. Carter Nature Preserve is a public wildlife sanctuary that offers several hiking trails, as well as providing water access along its expansive shoreline to Morgan Bay. Participants should arrive at 9:00am. We will assign volunteers specific areas and pass out necessary materials. We are looking for volunteers to work in pairs, with one picking up trash and the other recording data on the trash collected. All data from the cleanup will be shared with the Ocean Conservancy’s International Coastal CleanUp Program. Participants will receive coupons for Pugnuts Ice Cream Shop as a special reward for a job well done. For further info or to sign up, contact the BHHT office or Madelyn Woods ( 374-2135) at Marine & Environmental Research Institute.
