Weekend Happenings: Beach Sweeps, Bayfest, Patti McWalk + More
File this one under, 'so sad you have to laugh.'
The annual list of the trash we littered our beautiful New Jersey beaches with has just been released, and, again this year, some of the items found are bizarre and hard to believe.
The list is used by Clean Ocean Action to promote their latest round of beach cleanings.
The 30th annual Clean Action Ocean Beach Sweeps are this Saturday, April 25th, with thousands of volunteers spending the day picking up trash found on our beaches. See a list of Atlantic and Cape May County beach sweep locations.
