Weekly Beach Clean Ups Will Resume Nov 3rd
We will resume weekly beach clean ups on Saturdays next weekend. I already know this weekend is going to literally be a wash out on t he beaches with the coming potential nor’easter. We will pick up at Beach Plum on November 3rd and resume our usual schedule of a different beach each Saturday starting at 9 AM as we go down the coast.
Nov 3 … Beach Plum 9 AM
Nov 10 … Cape Henlopen the point 9 AM
Nov 17 … Cape Henlopen Point crossing to Naval Jetty 9 AM
Nov 24 … Cape Henlopen Herring Point to Gordons Pond 9 AM
These areas are subject to change we will post a schedule on a dedicated page on the website soon.
If we start getting a larger group I will break them into teams and we can tackle more than one area at a time in a state park.
We will also be collaborating with DNREC on a mylar balloon study during a few of these clean ups around the Indian River Inlet. We may change up our schedule to accommodate their project/study for a specific area.
You don’t need to volunteer to help clean a beach, just carry in carry out and pick up anything you find along the way. Most of the trash on our beaches comes from the ocean and inland.
During storms like this coming weekend. Secure your trash cans. Everything that falls to the ground eventually washes into the sea. Roadside litter is a big problem when it makes it into the tax ditches and creeks from there. You would be surprised what washes up on a beach on any given day.
