There were 99 volunteers from the local schools and girl scouts who came to help make a difference while earning community service credit.

Legislator Kara Hahn came to help out and the cleanups were sponsored by the villages of Port Jefferson and Belle Terre. We are always looking for volunteers. If you are interested in learning more about the Coastal Steward, take a look at our website, Coastalsteward.net to see what we are about.
