In the 5 or so years that we’ve adopted the north end of Jenness Beach for cleanup, we’ve gotten used to the trash cycles that change with the seasons. Summers tend to be heavy with beer cans & bottles, coffee cups, and cigarette butts. The Nor’easter storms in the winter/shoulder seasons tend to bring ocean debris.
Our March cleanup showed us that we are clearly still in winter season. We picked up 75 lbs of rope, broken bits of lobster traps, and swamped buoys.
We always manage to find one keeper or two to bring back home. This time, Tina was the big winner when she stumbled upon an awesomely beautiful scallop shell. Next cleanup is planned for end of April, so please let us know if you’d like to join us!
