AOC "Clean Sweep"
Every Fall Eighteenmile Creek
stakeholders join forces with the American Littoral Society (ALS) New York State
Beach Cleanup Program to complete an Area of Concern (AOC) "Clean Sweep." For
the past 22 years, the American Littoral Society has been an essential link in
the International Coastal Cleanup, an environmental phenomena all its own,
removing and documenting the trash one finds along the shores of the world. One
of the goals of the American Littoral Society beach cleanup program is to
activate a growing number of participants, as well as to document and clean
additional sites each year.
the fall of 2007, Eighteenmile Creek watershed stakeholders and residents have
answered the call. Over 2,000 pounds of trash was collected from within the AOC.
Some rare finds include a microwave
door, an air tank, and various car parts.
If you would like to
participate, or have any questions

Please make sure you
contact Scott before arriving! It is important everyone knows the most current
and updated information.
