The Bayside Anglers will host its 19th annual Waterfront Day and shore cleanup at Little Neck Bay on April 14.
The event, which is coordinated with the city’s Parks Department, will take place along a three-mile stretch of public shoreline in Bayside, where volunteers will remove debris and trash from the bay.
Attendees will be provided with refreshments and food. And all participants are entered for a chance to win raffle prizes that have been donated by the event’s sponsors.
Northeast Queens organizations interested in participating in the cleanup should contact the Anglers’ event coordinator no later than April 1 with a list of members or volunteers that will be attending.
Community service certificates will be handed out to volunteers who request them.
Those interested in attending should bring work gloves and a paper reacher as well as wear boots to prevent from slipping on rocks.
Sign-in booths will be set up on the day of the event at Joe Michael’s Mile on the other side of the footbridge opposite Crocheron Pond, the Bayside Marina and Little Bay Park.
Registration will begin at 9 a.m. The cleanup lasts until noon. Lunch and raffles begin at 12:30 p.m.
