Clean Ocean Access (COA) is entering its 12th year of service – with an exclusive focus on Aquidneck Island.
In 2014, COA began cleaning Sachuest Point National Wildlife Refuge as part of the Marine Debris Solutions Lifecycle Project. This program expanded in 2015 and became part of the larger COA Flexible Cleanup Program, which provides the opportunity for the community to get involved in cleaning our coastline on a flexible schedule at multiple locations.
COA is now looking for additional volunteers to adopt a segment of Sachuest Point, performing satellite cleanups once a month and recording the debris they find. This program enhances environmental stewardship among individuals in the community while working with COA to accomplish our mission of “action today so future generations can enjoy ocean activities.”
Clean Ocean Access currently has 16 manageable segments of coastline along Sachuest Point. COA encourages individuals interested to reach out to them at firstname.lastname@example.org to adopt one of these small segments today and get involved!
