Sebago Canoe Club Trash Bash A Huge Success!
Volunteers from the American Littoral Society, sponsor of the annual worldwide shoreline cleanup and data collection project, arrived later by motorboat to remove the trash from the island for disposal.
Scores of volunteers participated in the paddle-cleanup, departing from the Sebago clubhouse in Canarsie to paddle across Jamaica Bay in canoes and kayaks.
Fifty-seven bags of trash were collected. Memorable objects found included a dog skull, a horseshoe crab bearing a numbered tag from a research study, a melted wax figurine bound in thread, and many coconuts. One team found a plastic commode from a boat, with a sink included!
