Clean Ocean Access (COA) hosted a beach cleanup on Saturday, October 13th at Coreys Lane in Portsmouth where 19 volunteers, including 14 students from the Naval Academy Preparatory Schools (NAPS), helped to remove 769 pounds of debris.

Some of the larger debris found on the beach included buoys, lobster traps,  fishing line, a large rug, and several boat parts. The students’ efforts helped divert hundreds of pounds of debris and hazardous waste from entering the ocean.

“We’re just trying to do our part and keep the world clean by cleaning up our beaches,” said Davon, Christian and Jordan, students at NAPS. “It’s crazy how much [debris] there actually is to pick up,” add Salvador, Kenna, and Ayanna, another group of volunteers. Join COA  for another beach cleanup at Taylors Lane on November 3rd and Weaver Cove on November 10th.
