More than 50 volunteers clean up Portsmouth beach

Posted

PORTSMOUTH — More than 50 volunteers, including members of the Portsmouth Community Service Club, attended Clean Ocean Access’ (COA) beach cleanup on Saturday and removed a total of 624 pounds of marine debris from Pheasant Drive beach.

The debris was collected in reusable bags donated by Clements’ Marketplace. 

COA’s previous cleanup at Pheasant Drive Beach in March 2017 yielded 953 pounds of marine debris. The organization has hosted 17 cleanups at this location since 2014, and removed a total of 5,919 pounds of marine debris in the past three years.

COA continues to host beach cleanups at various locations year-round to improve ocean health, promote environmental stewardship, and inspire others to take action today so future generations can enjoy ocean activities.
