Be part of this State-wide event, sponsored by the American Littoral Society, to help preserve our coastal marine habitat. The event strives to address the problem of pollution in our coastal waters by increasing public awareness through participation. Hallock State Park Preserve has a full mile of pristine beachfront on Long Island Sound. Ongoing removal of washed-up beach trash prevents dangerous plastics and other materials from re-entering the Sound and endangering marine wildlife.
