Meet at the Museum before proceeding to the Nature Trails and Beach Clearing. As many of the trails are in great shape, we will be expanding assignments to include invasive control and additional beach clean-up.

Please bring tools you are capable of handling effectively and SAFELY.

We will provide heavy duty garbage bags for beach and path cleaning.

We suggest you wear long pants, long sleeved shirts, socks and gloves to battle thorns and poison ivy.

(approximately 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.)

All participants are invited immediately thereafter to a post-clearing party AT THE MUSEUM to enjoy drinks and oysters. Thanks to Fishers Island Oyster Farm, Summer Shuckers, Bottlerocket, and Fishers Island Lemonade for their generous sponsorship of this festive Island tradition.
