Petty's Island is privately-owned and is in the midst of an amazing transformation from an active marine terminal and oil storage facility into a public park. Access to the island is limited, so don't miss this opportunity to see the island and help in its transformation. We will be doing a cleanup of the shoreline where marine debris threatens the health of wildlife and humans. Water and light refreshments served.
