Ocean and waterway trash ranks as one of the most serious pollution problems chocking our planet. A rising tide of marine debris threatens human health, wildlife, communities, and economies around the world. Our beaches on the South Shore are no exception! Please join us as White Horse Beach in Manomet for COASTSWEEP, an annual state-wide beach cleanup and data collection effort organized by the Massachusetts Office of Coastal Zone Management. This cleanup will also be a part of the town-wide beach cleanup day in Plymouth. Volunteers will work in small teams to collect and record trash found on the shoreline. This data is then used to develop education and policy initiatives to help reduce marine debris.
A registration table will be at the public entrance to White Horse Beach on Taylor Ave. Everything you need is provided - gloves, bags, data sheets, and pencils. We do ask that you keep your shoes on, so boots or sneakers are recommended. Learn more about COASTSWEEP here.
Check here for cancellation in case of inclement weather.
While walk-ins are welcome, registration in advance is appreciated!
