Students from KAPPA VI, a middle school program at Far Rockaway High School, came out in force to participate in the American Littoral Society's Annual Beach Cleanup. A total of 168 sixth- and seventh-grade students and teachers cleaned and documented debris at Beach 9 Street, last Friday. Don Riepe, Jamaica Bay Guardian, was on hand to talk to students about the need to recycle, reuse and keep debris from impacting our coastal beaches, wildlife and waterways. The community service day was arranged by teacher Jennifer Cantey. For information about participating in beach cleanup and marsh restoration projects, contact NYS coordinator Barbara Cohen of the Littoral Society at ALSBEACH@aol.com, or visit the website at www.alsnyc.org.
