The Delaware Center for the Inland Bays is seeking volunteers and boats for the 10th Annual Clean-Up of the Inland Bays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., Saturday, July 12. DNREC once again is lending support through the Division of Fish & Wildlife Enforcement Section, along with the Division of Parks & Recreation.

This year, the cleanup will take place at Massey’s Landing Public Boat Ramp at the end of Long Neck Road and concentrate on the Rehoboth Bay and Indian River Bay areas. Volunteers should dress to get dirty and be prepared for cooler conditions on the water as well as wet walking conditions on land. Rubber boots are also suggested. Those who have access to lifejackets should bring one, as they are required onboard any boat used during the cleanup. Otherwise, lifejackets will be provided.

Last year’s event drew 75 volunteers who filled a 30-yard donated dumpster with debris, including soda bottles and cans, tires, derelict crab pots and a lot of docking lumber.
