Shoreline Cleanup at Hoop Pole Creek
February 17, 2020 @ 4:00 pm
Help us protect coastal wildlife and habitats at Hope Pole Creek Nature Trail.
One of the federation’s primary initiatives is to reduce the amount of marine debris littering coastal shorelines and waterways. Hoop Pole Creek is a coastal creek, salt marsh and maritime forest preserve that continues to be rich with oysters, fish and other wildlife. Volunteers will help to pick up assorted trash and debris items, as well as trim trees and bushes along the trail and clean off the boardwalk.
This entire event will take place outdoors, so dress accordingly. Closed-toed shoes are required, and sturdy shoes for walking in wet areas are also recommended. Boots are appropriate if you choose to walk along the water’s edge. Trash bags, gloves and other cleanup materials will be provided. Anyone under 16 must be accompanied by an adult.
