Happy ! Led by Watershed Ambassador Melissa Belen-Gonzalez, volunteers came out to clean up Corson's Inlet State Park!
20 volunteers, comprised ofOcean City residents, Ocean City Environmental Commission members, and Ocean City High School Student Environmental Association members, cleaned up 11 bags of trash, 4 chairs, a bucket and an instrument case!
Some common trash items found were cigarette butts, some cigar butts, toothbrushes, glass bottles/glass pieces, aluminum cans, plastic litter, several fishing lines (some with hooks still attached), and a long piece of wire from a crab trap. This is over 600 pounds of trash removed from the watershed! 👏👏👏
This was one of our AmeriCorps Week events in partnership with New Jersey State Parks, Forests & Historic Sites!
