Clean Ocean Access Cystic Fibrosis Walk & Cleanup
From 9AM to Noon : Walk with Clean Ocean Access at Brenton Point State Park and help support Luke Sweeney and TEAM SWEEN raise money to find a cure for Cystic Fibrosis...or just come and walk with us! Raising awareness and raising money go hand in hand. Luke's GREAT STRIDES Home Page: http://www.cff.org/Great_Strides/dsp_DonationPage.cfm?walkid=7998&idUser=297918
From Noon to 2PM : Help to clean up the Cliff walk and our adopted Public Right of Way. We will meet at Marines Beach at Noon and send out volunteers in all directions to make one final effort to clean the cliff walk before the summer season. This is our 47th cleanup in the past 68 months and our next cleanup is in September. This a great way to enjoy time outside and be a part of our continued effort for clean coastlines!
More About Cliff Walk
The Cliff Walk is one of Newport's premier attractions. It is a 3.5-mile path that winds along the city's eastern rocky shoreline, offering incredible views of the ocean, mansions and more.
Designated as a National Recreation Trail in 1975, the Cliff Walk starts at the western end of Easton's Beach at Memorial Boulevard and runs south, ending at Bellevue Avenue by Bailey's Beach (more commonly known as Rejects Beach).
About two-thirds of the path is in easy walking condition. Parts of the southern half are rougher, running along the natural and rocky shore line. Walkers pass at their own risk. Some spots are just a few feet from abrupt drops of more than 70 feet, which are hidden by wild bushes and weeds. Poison ivy is also an issue in the summer months.
Proper walking shoes are strongly encouraged.
