Folks, we had two great events as part of the International Coastal Cleanup on September 16th and 17th. Thanks to all who came out! All of the trash has been catalogued in Surfrider Foundation’s nationwide beach cleanup database.
First in Asbury Park, we cleaned the beaches near 3rd Ave and up to Convention Hall. Lots of trash under that Convention Hall! There were 19 of us and we got 70 pounds of trash! We all got together at the Asbury Park Yacht Club afterwards for drinks and life-sized Jenga!
On Sunday the 17th, we had the Surfrider Youth Club from the Montclair Kimberly Academy come down and clean the beach near Remsen Ave in Spring Lake. In just one hour the students got 30 pounds of trash, all in tiny increments of bottle caps and cigarette butts. Thanks again to everyone who helped.
