Individuals, families, civic originations, scout troops and other eco-minded volunteers are needed for the Sea Isle City Environmental Commission’s 2017 Spring Beach Clean-Up on Saturday, April 22, 10:00 a.m. to 12 noon. Pre-registration is not required; volunteers can sign-up on the morning of the event at the Environmental Commission table on JFK Boulevard at the Promenade, where organizers will distribute gloves and other supplies.
During the Beach Clean-Up, volunteers will gather trash and debris from Sea Isle’s entire shoreline. While cleaning the beaches and dunes, participants will document what items are collected. That data will be sent to Clean Ocean Action, of Highlands, NJ, where it will be compiled with similar information from other shore communities in order to identify possible pollution issues.
Tee-shirts will be given to volunteers (while supplies last) on the day of the Clean-Up, provided courtesy of Approach Clothing Company, located at 6300 Landis Avenue. Each volunteer will also be given a free tree seedling. Students who donate their time during the Beach Clean-Up can earn community service credits.
