The local marine environment is cleaner and therefore healthier thanks to a recent cleanup of the shoreline along Havemeyer, Sexton and Captree Islands by volunteers from the Islip Town Leaseholders Association.
The group worked from both land and boat to fill 40 large contractor bags with litter.
Large debris was discarded in a dumpster provided by the New York State Parks Department, which has jurisdiction over the islands.
C.J. Dreher and George DiJulio joined scores of volunteers at the Havemeyer, Sexton and Captree Islands cleanup.
ITLA members clean miles of shoreline during an annual cleanup.
