The proof of ocean passion is in the sweep — the resumption of the 36th Annual Clean Ocean Action (COA) Spring Beach Sweeps on Saturday.
In getting back to a shore sense of normal, the Sweeps all the way down the Jersey coastline were met with more than 5,500 volunteers who worked at 67 sites from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. to haul debris off the beaches.

Our Retro Pic of the Day is meant to warm you up in more ways than one.
It’s a reminder of cozy waterfront warmth at Sea Bright beach in the midst of this wicked winter chill. And it’s a warm-up and precursor of sorts to our coming feature on Clean Ocean Action’s recent 30-year anniversary, as the featured photo is from the organization’s fall Beach Sweeps.
With the non-profit spearheaded by lifetime Rumsonite, Cindy Zipf, The sweeps have become a twice-annual environmental mainstay in the area for decades now.
Clean Ocean Action loves to let people know some of the oddest things found on the Jersey Shore beaches during sweeps. What’s the strangest you’ve ever heard of?
Stay tuned for our story. Congrats to Clean Ocean Action and Cindy Zipf!
