28th Annual Clean Ocean Action Beach Sweeps

 

Clean Ocean Action (COA) invites citizens and organizations to participate in the 28th Annual Spring Beach Sweeps on Saturday, April 27 at over 60 sites along the Jersey Shore.

 

A complete list of cleanup locations and times can be found at www.ForTheShore.org

 

This year’s event is in combination with the fifth Wave of Action, a program that is responding to the impacts of Superstorm Sandy and helping to improve and protect the marine environment through monthly volunteer actions.

 

The Beach Sweeps is much more than picking up trash, it’s about collecting data to help reduce sources of pollution. Volunteers are instructed to record the quantity and types of debris found. The information collected at the Sweeps is analyzed and published into annual reports. These reports helps identify pollution problems, aid legislators in enacting laws to protect our marine environment, and inform local and international efforts to combat marine pollution.

 

COA will release the 2012 Annual Beach Sweep report mid-April, just in time for the spring Beach Sweeps. All reports are available on-line at ww.CleanOceanAction.org. COA encourages participation from volunteers of all ages individually or from businesses, families, and organizations.

 

Volunteer are requested to pre-register by using the online sign-up form at www.ForTheShore.org. Volunteers should bring gloves, dress for the weather, apply sunscreen, and wear closed-toed, hard-soled shoes. List of sites.
