Asbury Park, NJ - The Brookdale women's soccer team partnered with Student Life & Activities and Clean Ocean Action on Saturday, October 26th for a beach sweep along the shore of Asbury Park. The Jersey Blues filled large garage bags to their carrying weight in order to help protect and conserve our New Jersey beaches.
"Clean Ocean Action (COA) is a broad-based coalition of 125 active boating, business, community, conservation, diving, environmental, fishing, religious, service, student, surfing, and women's groups. These "Ocean Wavemakers" work to clean up and protect the waters of the New York Bight. The groups came together in 1984 to investigate sources, effects, and solutions of ocean pollution."
"Our goal is to improve the degraded water quality of the marine waters off the New Jersey/New York coast." Clean Ocean Action will identify the sources of pollution and mount an attack on each source by using research, public education, and citizen action to convince our public officials to enact and enforce measures which will clean up and protect our ocean."
