Beach Clean-Ups- Sept. 20




The ICC program is a worldwide event and Audubon Society sponsors the event in Rhode Island. The slogan for the event is “Keep the Sea Free of Debris.” Recently, an Osprey added a piece of plastic to their nest and the entanglement resulted in the death of one of the young birds.




So pick-a-beach. Contact them by Sept. 1 & you'll likely receive a t-shirt. SO fashion-forward.
