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
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.
