Puget SoundCorps doing some clean-up
Maury Island Beach clean-up
Are you tired of seeing bottles, food wrappers and so much other trash floating around on what could be beautiful beaches and tidelands? Celebrate Earth Day with Washington State Department of Natural Resources (DNR) and Puget SoundCorps to help clean up the beach at Point Robinson, Maury Island.
The cleanup is from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., Tuesday, April 22. Parking is available at the upper lot of the Point Robinson Lighthouse.
– Coming on the ferry from Tacoma take Vashon Hwy SW.
– Take a right onto SW Quartermaster Dr.
– Follow SW Quartermaster Dr until you take another right onto Dockton Rd SW.
– Continue straight onto SW Point Robinson Rd; this will take you all the way into the park.
What to bring and what is provided?
Please bring your work gloves, water, and appropriate work wear and come help DNR and Puget SoundCorps make a difference this Earth Day.
DNR will provide garbage bags and light refreshments. Volunteers can also take guided tours of the Point Robinson Lighthouse.
For further information, contact Kirsten Miller, DNR Puget SoundCorps crewmember or visit the event page on Facebook.
