National Marine Life Center Participates in Coastsweep 2009

On Saturday September 19, 2009 a group of 17 volunteers set out to the Cape Cod Canal to clean the coastline between the Train Bridge and Bourne Bridge on the Buzzards Bay side. After 2 and 1/2 hours we came back with 149 lbs of trash and cover 1.25 miles of rocks and coastline. Of that 149lbs of trash 17lbs was monofilament fishing line and in 2 and 1/2 hours our group also picked up over 1100 cigarette butts. Thank you to all of the dedicated volunteers who came out and gave up a Saturday morning to help clean up our earth and oceans.
