Upcoming RS Upcoming Community Service Events:
Hempstead Supervisor Don Clavin and members of the Hempstead Town Board are teaming up with Atlantic Marine Conservation Society (AMSEAS) to host regular community beach clean-ups in Lido Beach and Point Lookout.
Pollution is a large problem, especially near water where each tide brings in more debris and trash. Lido Beach is a migration and nesting site for various species of birds, such as the endangered Piping Plover, which makes it even more important to keep the beach clean.
We are asking for volunteers from the town each month to join in cleaning up trash and debris from the beach. This is a wonderful way to give back and to learn about the environment while working together as a community. Volunteers can sign up for a one-hour time slot; there will be a maximum number of participants per time slot, and registration is required. Clean-up supplies will be provided, but it is recommended to bring your own gloves. Please practice social distancing.
