UPDATE: We have reached our 25 person limit for the Clean Up but you can still fill out the sign up form and we will place you on our standby list and notify you if a spot opens up.
After conferring with Pelham Bay Park administrators and getting their approval, the 11th annual HRRP Thomas Pell Wildlife Sanctuary Cleanup is going forward. It will take place on Sunday, September 20th from 9 am — 3 pm. However, it will be a little different this year due to the ongoing Covid 19 pandemic.
As per Parks Dept. rules, we will need to limit the event to no more than 25 people participating in cleaning up along the river banks. There is no limit on those who wish to take their own kayaks or canoes to the event but you won’t be permitted to launch from the clean up site. If you contact us, we can suggest some other accessible launch sites Social distancing needs to be observed and masks are mandatory. Children are welcome.
HRRP will provide masks, gloves, hand sanitizer, shoe coverings, recycling bags and light snacks.
Restrooms will be available at the Pelham Bit Stables just across Shore Rd. from the clean up site or at Turtle Cove Golf Center a short walk from the site on City Island Rd.
