New York Earth Day Cleanup

Take Action for Earth Month

Join Save the Sound for a volunteer Earth Day Coastal Cleanup event in Rye, New York!

Help protect the environment by removing trash from our coastline. In addition to cleaning the beach, Save the Sound can use the data you collect to influence laws that reduce pollution at the source! We’ll be using the Clean Swell app to keep track of the trash we pick up. Download here: iOS or Android.

Day & Location

Sunday, April 21, 2024
10 a.m. to 12 p.m.
Rye Town Beach, Rye, NY


To ensure we have enough supplies for everyone and can keep you informed in case of any weather-related changes, please RSVP below.
