Event description

Description

On Saturday morning, April 21, we will join thousands of volunteers on the Jersey shore to collect trash from beaches, bays, and waterways, helping Clean Ocean Action catalog the type of debris removed.

We will gather near the Melrose Terrace entrance to the Beach where we will divvy up garbage bags and data-collection sheets. Then, we walk along the beach and help make it garbage-free!

Afterward, we will head to the Boardwalk for lunch.

There is no cost involved, but if you need transportation to the site, we are asking for a $30 contribution to go towards the cost of a van. (Please register below as such) Lunch is on your own dime.

A couple of other notes:

  • Children are welcome, but those under 12 years old must be accompanied by an adult
  • PLEASE bring and wear your own gloves! Gardener's gloves are best or even winter gloves (as they may be washed) or rubber gloves will work. (All other materials will be provided.)
  • Attend rain or shine
  • Dress for the weather (It's usually chillier at the beach)
  • Wear Sunscreen
  • Stay off the dunes
  • Respect wildlife
  • Wear close-toed, hard-soled shoes such as sneakers (NO open-toed sandals, please)
  • Reduce single use plastic waste by bringing your own reusable water bottle

FAQs


Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

There is no minimum age, but children under 12 years old must be accompanied by an adult.

What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?

If you are coming from NYC, we plan to arrange for a van, pending interest. There is a train, but the schedule is not accommodating. PLEASE NOTE: Seats on the van are very limited -- but if we have more interest than can fit in one car, we can order a second one. Please email Lorraine (lorrsg@gmail.com) if you can provide transportation from NYC or would like to drive.

If you are coming from the Princeton area and would like to carpool, please email Noemi at noemidlp@yahoo.com who will coordinate.

How can I contact the organizer with any questions?

Please contact PWNNYC@gmail.com

What's the refund policy?

If you need to cancel and have RSVP'd that you would like to come with the van, we need at least seven (7) days' notice for a refund. The event will be held rain or shine, so we cannot give refunds the day of the event even if the weather is not cooperating.

Can I update my registration information?

Sure.
