Summer is finally here! Whether sitting on the beach reading a book, cooling off in the water or just hanging out on the boardwalk, there is always a reason to be outside in the hot summer months. Why not add ocean activism to that list?
Throughout July and August, COA will be hosting the 25th annual Clean Ocean Action Shore Tips (C.O.A.S.T.) campaign to educate citizens about current ocean pollution issues. As in previous years, you will find our volunteers at information tables on beaches, beach clubs, and festivals throughout Monmouth and Ocean counties on weekends in July and August.

Monmouth Beach Bath and Tennis Club

We hope to see lots of supporters on the beaches this summer! Stop by a C.O.A.S.T. table to learn about ocean pollution issues, sign important petitions, donate to our cause, buy popular environmentally-themed merchandise and learn how to become more involved with Clean Ocean Action! Together we can achieve a cleaner ocean!
Yours for a cleaner ocean,
