Earth Day is this weekend and it's a great opportunity to spruce-up our area beaches.

The borough of Longport is looking for volunteers to clean-up its beaches as part of Clean Ocean Action Committee’s statewide beach clean-up effort. Volunteers are invited to meet at beach patrol headquarters at 31st and Atlantic Avenues in Longport this Saturday morning at 8:30. Materials for picking up debris will be provided. If you would like more information, call the borough at 823-2731.
