A trash cleanup with kayaks off Chimon Island, a Long Island Island Sound Stewardship Area. The cleanup took place Sept. 17 as part of the International Coastal Cleanup, an annual event held in coastal areas around the world to focus on the problem of marine debris. Save the Sound is coordinating coastal cleanups in Connecticut through October. The American Littoral Society is coordinating beach cleanups in New York.
