Connecticut Fund for the Environment's "Picking Up the Pieces on Connecticut's Beaches"
Bluff Point State Park in Groton
I've spoken with contact/host MaryEllen Mateleska of Mystic Aquarium, 860.572.5955, ext. 156. She is pleased to welcome as many CommunityThinkers as are available. (Last year there were Coast Guard cadets & Boy Scouts that brought the number to 165!) Volunteers will be asked to fill out a liability form on site, and will be provided:
- hand sanitizer
- trash bags
*And/or would we like to coordinate a group picnic or trek to local pizza in celebration...?!
If you've not been to Bluff Point before, you're in for a treat! There are great jogging & mountain-bike paths (leashed pet-friendly), quiet hike- or paddle-in beaches, fishing, a boat launch.... www.ct.gov/dep/cwp/view.asp?a=2716&q=325178
