COASTSWEEP in Provincetown
The Provincetown Center for Coastal Studies (PCCS) invites volunteers to participate in a beach cleanup of Long Point in Provincetown at 10 a.m. on Saturday, September 25. PCCS will lead volunteers as part of COASTSWEEP, the state-wide beach cleanup sponsored by CZM and the Urban Harbors Institute at UMass Boston.
Marine debris is a serious problem facing our oceans and coasts. It degrades coastal and marine vistas, harms wildlife, introduces toxins and chemicals into our water, destroys habitats and can directly affect human health.
Meet in front of the PCCS kiosk on MacMillan Pier in Provincetown. Flyer’s Boat Rental Provincetown will shuttle volunteers free of charge to and from Long Point and Napi’s restaurant will provide lunch to all participants immediately following the cleanup.
Please register by calling Jesse Mechling at 508.487.3623, ext.103; firstname.lastname@example.org.
