As part of COASTSWEEP Beach Cleanup, volunteers are encouraged to come to Dane Street Beach to help in the statewide effort to keep our coastline clean along the shore in Salem Massachusetts. 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 Salem Sound Coastwatch.

Bags and gloves will be provided, but you can bring these things with you:
- Gardening Gloves
- A hat
- Sneakers or shoes you are willing to get sandy and maybe a little messy
Salem Sound Coastwatch is a non-profit coastal watershed organization that works with government agencies, businesses, other non-profit organizations, and individuals, through municipal partnering, scientific investigation, education, and stewardship.
