MVSA members showed up on a foggy Saturday morning to participate in the island wide, earth day beach cleanup. The entire Norton Point beach was cleaned up of debris all the way to the breach. Many thanks to those who participated and helped to make this a successful event.

Wasque Point has undergone some drastic changes since the MV Derby last Fall. Ron Domurat took a ride out there earlier this week and took some nice photos for our viewers. Check out the latest photos of what Wasque looks like as of April 12th. You will hardly recognize it. You might recognize the nice rip being formed in the ocean but the beach front has completely changed. Thanks to Ron Domurat for providing these photos.

The MVSA will once again be involved with the VCS beach cleanup. The Trustees expect that Norton Point trail will be open Saturday and that a clean up along the new inside trail will be greatly appreciated. MVSA members are asked to meet April 21st at 10:00 a.m. at the entrance to Norton Point Beach (left fork).  Bring tick repellent.

Details will be provided at that time. Bags will also be provided but please bring your own gloves.  Here is some additional information from the VCS provided by David Nash.

Hello everyone.  It’s time to make plans for the annual Vineyard Conservation Society beach clean-up effort.  This year the clean-up falls on April 21 and will run from 10 to 12 with another great barbeque at SBS following our collective efforts.  Since this is the 20th anniversary of this we are trying to do a little extra and have already secured some free T-shirts for the kids who participate and we are also planning on holding another of our hugely successful free raffles. 

    You are all the people who helped make this event such a success last year (and for some of you, many years).  Some of you are connected to organizations like the Girl Scouts, Cub Scouts, Community Service program and have helped supply the resources to clean up multiple beach locations and that is especially appreciated. Last year, more groups participated than ever before and we are hoping this trend will continue as the beach clean-up represents a wonderful way to support the Martha’s Vineyard environment and celebrate Earth Day, and in a small way the arrival of spring even though we all know it doesn’t really arrive on Martha’s Vineyard until June!

    We are hopeful you will again participate this year and we would greatly appreciate if you could email me back to either confirm your participation or to advise me that we need to replace you or your group with another.  Please feel free to bring to our attention any problems or issues that we could maybe help with such as too many people at your beach or not enough people or not enough supplies, etc.


    If you prefer, you can call me as well.  I can be reached at 508-627-4867. 
Thanks.  David Nash
