We had beautiful weather and a lot of devoted individuals working together at the Seaside Park, Bridgeport, CT cleanup including a team from one of our corporate sponsors, Gesswein!
We removed 1,202 lbs of trash from the beach, over 4,300 cigarette butts, 4 tires (one of which was a very large and heavy tractor-trailer tire far our near the lighthouse!), countless bottles, hoards of fishing line, and many more items!
The Mayor of Bridgeport stopped by to thank us for the impact we were making, and for helping out community and the earth. It was a great family event with a lot of kids, and everyone had fun at the grill eating hotdogs towards the end as the raffle prize winners were announced.
This 2.5-mile long crescent-shaped park originally donated by P.T. Barnum in 1864 borders Bridgeport Harbor, Long Island Sound, and Black Rock Harbor. At the very end is the Black Rock Harbor light which was installed in 1823 and is on the National Register of Historic Places.
