Beach Cleanup at Scusset Beach State Reservation
We had a great time during our annual Scusset Beach State Reservation Clean-Up this past Saturday. Over 15 people joined NECWA staff as we worked hard to pick up the trash along the shores of Scusset Beach.
Kerry, Mary and Jessica checked everyone in as folks met us at the beginning of the boardwalk. Once checked in, everyone picked up their Coastsweep data sheets, protective gloves and trash bags.

Thanks to the NECWA staff who helped with this clean-up effort, including Leah, Mary, Kerry and Jason. Thanks also to our NECWA interns, Fabiana and Jessica, for doing such a great job at the snack bar and on the beach.

And a special thanks to all the people who joined us on Saturday morning for what turned out to be a very successful and fun clean-up effort. We thank you for your support and hope to see you next fall at our next Scusset Beach Clean-up Effort.
Check back for a tally of the items that we collected during this beach clean-up. All the data will be sent to Coastsweep and then shared with the Ocean Conservancy in Washington, DC.
