Thank you to everyone that participated in the beach clean up this past Saturday! We had a little over 200 people participate. We also had a few community partners such as Delivery Dudes, Mike's Sub Shack, Wisetribe and Deck 84 hand out giveaways and coupons to participants. Hundreds of pounds of debris was removed from our beaches. Our next beach clean up is scheduled for September 15th! Hope to see you all then.
Hey everybody, we are in need of old newspaper for lining of some of our animal habitats. If anyone has newspaper they can donate we would greatly appreciate it. Just come by the center during open hours and drop it off. Thank you!
The Sandoway will be closed SUNDAY, APRIL 1st. We will reopen Tuesday the 3rd.
