Coastsweep Beach Clean-up

Date: Saturday, October 5
Time: 10am-12pm
Location: Westport Town Beach, Cherry and Webb Lane, Westport MA

Each fall, thousands of volunteers throughout Massachusetts turn out for COASTSWEEP—the statewide coastal cleanup sponsored by the Massachusetts Office of Coastal Zone Management (CZM). COASTSWEEP is part of the International Coastal Cleanup organized by Ocean Conservancy in Washington, DC.  Volunteers from all over the world collect marine debris—trash, fishing line, and any other human-made items—and record what they find. This information is then analyzed and used to identify sources of marine debris and develop education and policy initiatives to help reduce it.

Volunteers are invited to meet at the Town Beach parking lot on Cherry and Webb Lane at 10 o’clock.  Gloves, trash bags and other materials will be provided.  In addition to removing the debris from the beach, important data will be collected and returned to the Massachusetts Office of Coastal Zone Management.

For more information, and to sign up, contact the Westport River Watershed Alliance at 508-636-3016 or email outreach@wrwa.com.
