Hi there, 

United By Blue is a ocean-friendly brand of apparel, which removes a pound of trash from oceans and waterways for every product sold. 

We are hosting a cleanup of Canarsie Pier beach with Sperry Top-Sider on April 14th and currently looking for volunteers to join us! 

I was just wondering if Brooklyn Bird Club members would be interested in participating.  

Please let me know if you have any questions. 

 Sperry Top-Sider and United By Blue Canarsie Pier Beach Cleanup
Saturday, April 14th, 10 am to 1 pm
Canarsie Pier, Gateway National Recreation Area
Intersection of Rockaway Pkwy and Shore Pkwy, Brooklyn, NY 11236

Join Sperry Top-Sider and United By Blue in cleaning up Canarsie Pier Beach in Gateway National Recreation Area, Brooklyn. Volunteers should meet and park at the end of Canarsie Pier. Our cleanups are a mix of hard work and play, with the cleanup ending in one-of-a-kind giveaways and prizes. Sperry Top-Sider and United By Blue will provide free breakfast and lunch, water, bug spray, sunscreen, bags, and gloves for volunteers. You provide the hands.
