Join a coastal cleanup team
Volunteers working together can make a huge difference in the health of our planet. Our Coastal Cleanup program is a great way to get outside and get involved.
Over the last 10 years, Save the Sound has helped organize hundreds of coastal cleanup events that have brought together more than 17,000 volunteers who have removed 137,500 pounds of trash from 500 miles of waterfront.
You can get involved by joining an established shore, watercraft or underwater cleanup or by becoming a Cleanup Captain and putting together your own team!
Habitat restoration in your backyard
Our habitat restoration program has great projects that could use boots on the ground. We remove invasive plant species that are choking native flora, protect disappearing dune grasses, and build fish ladders to help fish reach spawning sites. We hold volunteer plantings to help rebuild the habitats around many of our restoration sites.
