The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection's Adopt a Beach program
fosters volunteer stewardship of the State's coastal beaches and reduces the threat of marine debris to fish and wildlife. The DEP selects two days per year, one in the spring and one in the fall, for coast wide cleanups. Program volunteers adopt beaches for one year, agreeing to clean the beach of litter and debris on designated cleanup days. Adopt a Beach volunteers have been removing marine debris from the State's shorelines since 1993. All cleanups start at 8:00 a.m. Call for information about future dates for cleanups at DEP at (609) 29-BEACH or check the calendar of events.
If you have a group of Volunteers who want to assist you must register prior to the event to reserve a beach and to receive supplies or you may join us
This program fosters volunteer stewardship of the state's coastal shorelines and beaches through public participation.
