Seeking Volunteers for Gloucester Harbor Cleanup April 12
Join Ocean Alliance for the first ever citywide Gloucester Harbor Cleanup on April 12. The event is being led by the Rozalia Project and joins local non-profits, city, state and federal government, and regional schools in a coordinated hour of not only trash collection, but also data collection.
On Friday evening (April 11) Maritime Gloucester will host a presentation by the Rozalia Project open to all ages and free to the public from 7-8 pm. The cleanup will be taking place on Saturday morning (April 12) from 10-11 with different teams working on different regions of the harbor.
Our team, led by Rebecca Siswick Graham, will be working at the end of Horton Street—the road leading up to the Paint Factory. Volunteers of all ages can join us at the Paint Factory at 32 Horton Street at 9:30 and the cleanup will last for one hour. We will need pickers and data collectors (forms provided) working in pairs, so if you’d like to pick up trash bring some non-disposable gloves such as gardening or work gloves, or if you’d like to be a data collector please bring a clipboard.
The following groups will also be leading teams:
- Maritime Gloucester
- Rocky Neck Cultural District and Art Colony
- Manchester Essex Green Team
- Mass Audubon
- City of Gloucester
- Gloucester and Rockport Public Schools
- Harbortown Cultural District
- Mass DEP
We appreciate any and all help so we look forward to seeing you!
