Why Volunteer?

Are you a Long Islander who counts down the days until summer? Is the beach your second home, or just a fun place to visit some weekends? Whatever the case, Long Island is your home. CSLI is an all volunteer organization and we could use your help to continue our efforts in preserving our local beaches and ecology. Join us in our mission to keep our Island home to some of the most beautiful and top-rated beaches in the United States, restoring populations of vital marine life, and educating the public. 

Ways To Get Involved

  • Participate as a beach cleanup volunteer and help keep Long Island's beaches clean and safe for generations to come. See our event schedule for cleanup dates.
  • Plant oysters, collect relevant data, help maintain their tanks, and finally help release them into the harbor! Look for Shellfish Restoration Program Day on our events schedule here.
  • Are you interesting in volunteering time to help with office work, planning/leading beach cleanups, or want to join our board? Please let us know. We can never have enough volunteers!
