Volunteer Opportunity: Two Day Trash Tally

October 10 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Take a Deep Dive into the Debris Data! Join CCS staff and volunteers in North Truro on Saturday, October 9 from 9 am – 4 pm, and Sunday, October 10 from 9 am – noon, as we sort, weigh, count and inventory the hundreds of pounds of trash, fishing gear and other debris collected during the Outer Cape Cleanup, held September 24-27.

While it may not be rocket science, the data provided by a thorough inventory help us to understand the sources and impacts of plastic trash on our shorelines — the second step (after the initial cleanup itself) toward mitigating the plastic marine debris problem.

If you’d like to meet interesting people, get your hands a bit dirty, and feel satisfaction as a citizen scientist, please contact Laura Ludwig at [email protected] for details and to sign up.
