Fall Beach Clean-up at Scusset Beach

Beach Clean-up at Scusset Beach State Reservation

Date: Saturday, September 19, 2015
Time: 10 am - 12 pm (noon)
No rain date
Meeting Location: Bathhouse/Snack Bar at Scusset Beach



The New England Coastal Wildlife Alliance (NECWA) is sponsoring its annual beach cleanup at Scusset Beach State Reservation on Saturday, September 19th from 10 am to 12 pm. 

This beach cleanup is part of a larger effort through COASTSWEEP, the Massachusetts-wide coastal cleanup that occurs during September and October. And our beach cleanup at Scusset Beach is in conjunction with the Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR).

COASTSWEEP cleanups are organized by the Massachusetts Office of Coastal Zone Management (CZM). Each fall, thousands of volunteers collect tons of trash from beaches, marshes, riverbanks and the seafloor. These cleanups are part of the International Coastal Cleanup organized by the Ocean Conservancy in Washington, D.C. Last year alone, 2,588 volunteers cleaned 139 miles of coastline, collecting more than seven tons of trash. 

NECWA will be meeting at the bathhouse/snack bar at Scusset Beach at 10 am. We will spend an hour cleaning the beach and then return for refreshments and a free nature-themed raffle. 

Please join us at Scusset Beach and let’s have fun spending time outdoors with family and friends, new and old. All are invited for this is a family event. NECWA and COASTSWEEP will provide all the necessary supplies, including protective gloves, garbage bags and data sheets for this cleanup effort.
