Volunteers took to the streets yesterday in downtown Riverhead to clean up the area to celebrate the 44th annual Earth Day.

Organized by Hyatt East End general manager Steve Shauger, the effort lasted two hours as the group picked a dozen trash bags worth of litter from the area surrounding downtown, from Main Street to the waterfront. Employees with Hyatt East End, Atlantis Catering, the Long Island Aquarium & Exhibition Center, and the Riverhead Foundation for Marine Research and Preservation all participated.

Earth Day — celebrated each year on April 22 — was started in 1970 as an effort to make the world a cleaner place.
