COASTSWEEP is part of the Ocean Conservancy's International Coastal Cleanup. Volunteers from all over the world collect marine debris (trash, fishing line, and any other human-made items) and record what they find to help build solutions to this problem.
Cleanups are held throughout September, October, and into November—and with more than 1,500 miles of shoreline in Massachusetts, COASTSWEEP needs your help!
