Mashpee, MASS. – COASTSWEEP is an annual international effort from September through November to remove trash from coastal areas. Volunteers of all ages and backgrounds come together to collect marine debris – trash, fishing line, and any other human-made items – from local beaches, rivers, ponds and underwater areas. Items collected are then categorized and tallied to help discover marine debris sources and find solutions to this problem.
Senior Corps RSVP and Waquoit Bay Reserve are collaborating to remove debris from South Cape Beach in Mashpee on Wednesday, September 18, 2019. All volunteers are welcome, and will meet at the South Cape Beach parking lot at 10AM.
Bags, gloves and tally sheets will be provided. Please bring personal drinking water.
Senior Corps RSVP is a program of Elder Services of Cape Cod & the Islands, Inc., a 501-c-3 organization. Waquoit Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve is administered by the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation in partnership with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. Both programs promote science-based decision-making that leads to healthy coastal ecosystems.
