The Sea Isle City Environmental Commission will host its annual Autumn Beach Clean-Up and Dune Grass Planting Saturday, Oct. 13, from 10 a.m. to noon, with a rain date Oct. 14.

During this important effort, volunteers will clear trash and debris from Sea Isle’s entire shoreline and plant grass seedlings that will help strengthen the dunes.

Volunteers are asked to sign in on the day of the clean-up at JFK Boulevard and the Promenade, where members of the Environmental Commission will distribute supplies. Families, individuals, scout troops, businesses and members of organizations are encouraged to participate.

Free T-shirts will be given to volunteers, while supplies last, courtesy of Approach Clothing Company, located at 6300 Landis Ave.
