Sea Scouts Join with JGTSCA for the
Annual Pine Island Clean Up

The Sea Scouts of Ship Dragon (Groton, CT) once again teamed with JGTSCA members to help clean up Pine Island. This annual event helps to raise environmental awareness and tidies up the island in preparation for summer usage.

Mother ocean provided calm conditions and plenty of sunshine making for an enjoyable trip. We filled many bags with trash and removed some larger items including tires and styrofoam flotation pieces.

There were a variety of craft used for transport to the island, including Avery Point dories, the John Gardner gig, and boats provided by "CROPC" (Connecticut River Oar & Paddle Club). A trash hauling boat was provided by JGTSCA member Paul Robertson and was a tremendous help ferrying the collected trash to the mainland.

We enjoyed a very nice cookout afterwards at the boat house. Once again ShopRite Supermarkets supported our Earth Day efforts and provided gloves, trash bags, drinks, and cookies.
