Annual Nasketucket Bay State Reservation Clean-up

Posted April 19th, 2016 in Uncategorized by Charles Radville

On April 30 the Commonwealth is sponsoring the Department of Conservation and Recreation’s 10th annual “Park Serve Day”. Nasketucket Bay State Reservation is not one of the 40 properties targeted, but the Friends of Nasketucket Bay State Reservation and the Mattapoisett Land Trust believe that our own “park” could benefit from a spring cleaning again this year. The public is invited to spend a couple hours enjoying the early spring beauty of the park while collecting litter and debris from the paths and beaches.

Everyone interested in helping to beautify our local “park” should meet at the Nasketucket Bay State Reservation parking lot at 1:00 p.m. on April 30. The clean-up will end by 3:30. Please bring your own gloves; rubber boots are highly recommended. Bags will be provided for trash and recyclables. For more information call 774-377-9191 or email Share a couple hours in service to celebrate a belated Earth Day.
