Cleaning Up Our Shoreline

Our friends from Sea Shepherd Boston were kind enough to join us this week for a shoreline clean-up of Horton Street in Gloucester, MA–home of Ocean Alliance. The rocks along our shoreline create a trap for fishing gear, water bottles, stryrofoam cups and other debris that needs to be collected every few months to prevent it from washing out to sea. It’s another example how organizations can accomplish more when they work together:

Many thanks to Olga Pristin and Anne Flaherty of Sea Shepherd Boston, for coming up with the plan, Donna Ardizzoni, Saoirse Donegan, Rebecca Borden and mother Dot, Gloucester City Council member Melissa Cox, the Pristin family, Randy and Dylan for your hard work, and of course, Eliza Muirhead for capturing the effort.
