Greenwich Beach Clean Up Day, Saturday, Feb. 24

Recent storms have left our local beaches cluttered with trash. We’re responsible for the trash; now is our chance to pick it up. 

Join BYOGreenwich and the Bruce Museum Seaside Center for a Beach Cleanup at Greenwich Point. 

Sign up here.

Meet in the first parking lot on the right as you drive in. Wear warm outdoor work clothes (waterproof boots and yard gloves are recommended). Cleanup supplies, coffee, hot cocoa and donuts will be provided. Community service hours are available.

Partners in the clean-up effort include: BYO Greenwich, G.R.A.B., Greenwich Green & Clean, Greenwich Shellfish Commission, Friends of Greenwich Point, Greenwich Point Conservancy, Bruce Museum Seaside Center, SoundWaters, Surfrider Foundation CT and the Town of Greenwich.

Mark Your Calendar: On Sunday, March 4, 1:30 – 4 pm, at the Bruce Museum Seaside Center, producer and filmmaker Jacob Steinberg will show segments of his new feature-length documentary Osprey.

Incorporating the latest in high-frame-rate equipment, infrared, drone aerials, underwater and time-lapse photography, the film combines state-of-the-art technology with compelling storytelling to bring the remarkable drama of a life-long pair of ospreys from Greenwich, Connecticut, to the screen. In addition, Genevieve Nuttall will talk about Connecticut Audubon Society’s Osprey Nation, a citizen-science program designed to monitor the health of our state’s ospreys, and engage volunteers who would like to participate.

The event is part of the Bruce Museum’s Fred Elser First Sunday Science Series at the Seaside Center, held on the first Sunday of each month, 1:30 – 4:00 pm. Steinberg has been following the migration of ospreys with his cameras since 2012 and will show highlights of his feature-length documentary, which will debut this spring, as well as offer a question-and-answer session at 1:45 and 2:50 pm. Nuttall will discuss the Osprey Nation program with a slide presentation at 2:30 pm.

Family friendly activities on the osprey theme will also take place from 1:30 to 4:00 pm.

The Fred Elser First Sunday Science programs are supported in part by Osprey Private Client and are organized by the Bruce Museum.

This event is held at the Innis Arden Cottage/ Seaside Center in Greenwich Point Park, Old Greenwich, CT. For more information, contact Bruce Museum Seaside Center Manager Cynthia Ehlinger at cynthiae@brucemuseum.org or 203-413-6756.
