Summer is in full-swing, which means it is coasting time! There’s nothing more refreshing than a beautiful beach day at the Jersey shore, which is where you’ll be seeing our volunteer advocates helping out to prevent ocean pollution.
This summer, COA will be hosting the 26th annual Clean Ocean Action Shore Tips (C.O.A.S.T.) campaign to help 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. If you are interested in having a C.O.A.S.T. table on your beach or at your festival, please feel free to contact Melissa.
We know you’ve been waiting for them, so the C.O.A.S.T. campaign for 2015 will be featuring new merchandise: COA hats! The hats will be available in multiple colors and will display our vibrant logo. Stop by one of our tables to pick up one of your very own.

June 27-28: Bradley Beach LobsterFest
July 4-5: Ship Ahoy Beach Club
July 11-12: Chapel Beach Club, Driftwood Beach Club, Sands Beach Club, Monmouth Beach Bath & Tennis Club
