As part of COASTSWEEP 2021, volunteers are encouraged to come to Gloucester to help in the statewide effort to keep our coastline clean along the Gloucester beaches and shoreline. Trash collected will be measured and analyzed, and the data will be sent to Washington DC to aid the government in creating legislation to minimize trash in our oceans! This specific cleanup is coordinated by Timothy Bushfield and the Community Church of East Gloucester, and will cover up 8 beaches in Gloucester.
