Nature Days COVID Edition: A PARTIAL look at 7 weeks of Coastal Debris

49 days = 7 weeks = 1 Summer week, 2 Fall weeks, 2 Winter weeks & 2 Spring weeks

Due to the pandemic, the Fishers Island Conservancy was unable to hold the annual Nature Days event live and in-person on the Parade Ground. So the Coastal Debris exhibit is brought to you online here and on the Conservancy’s Facebook page, search @FishersIslandConservancy.

Thank you to Michele Klimczak and her small team for all the work they continue to do endlessly and year-round, to keep Fishers Island’s many beaches and coves clear of all the coastal debris that finds its way to our Island shores.

No matter how you count it – it is too much!
