Coastal Sweep


Along the shores of one of New England's most beautiful beaches, volunteers were hard at work. Many of those volunteers were members of Gordon's biology club as they donated their time and energy to cleaning up Crane Beach in Ipswich during Coast Sweep. "We had a rare pickup truck ride on the beach," said Craig Story, professor of Biology. When we reached the end of the beach, we walked 2.5 miles back cataloging each piece of trash we encountered, which included over 50 balloons and 80 pieces of rope." Another Coast Sweep is planed for Saturday, September 18th, at Wingaersheek Beach in Gloucester.
