Earth Day: Volunteers help clean up debris at Rattle Snake Creek in Oakdale
On this Earth Day, volunteers are helping to keep Long Island clean.
Some volunteers are out this morning at Rattle Snake Creek on Sunrise Highway in Oakdale.
The volunteers from Save the Great South Bay are cleaning up dumped debris, tires and construction debris.
The group says the creeks are the lifeblood of Long Island and the Great South Bay will only be as healthy as the creeks and rivers that flow into it.
There are some 50 creeks that flow into the bay along the 16 communities along the South Shore.
