Sebago Canoe Club
Eastern Mountain Sports SoHo and TEVA footwear will be co-sponsoring the Sebago Canoe Club’s annual clean up of Jamaica Bay. Volunteers receive a certificate for a free pair of TEVA mush flip flops! Water and snacks will be supplied. Please bring your own waterbottle, heavy work gloves, raingear if needed and good boots.

Help clean up the edges of Paerdegat Basin starting at 10 am (assemble at the club by 9:30). The wrath of Irene has left a very large amount of debris along the shores, much of it above the normal high tide mark. Hopefully by 9/24, the levels will be closer to normal, giving plenty of room to get in and pick up. No experience is necessary, but we welcome veterans who have helped with the BASH in past years.
Please be sure to wear appropriate footware, and consider the possibility of both bugs and sun burn. Americal Littoral will be providing us with supplies, including bags and gloves. However, the gloves are usually a thin cloth, so if you have sturdy work gloves, bring those along.
