Crews sought for beach cleanups


The sunbathers and wave riders have cleared the state’s beaches, but the Audubon Society of Rhode Island is encouraging residents to return to the beach, bringing trash bags instead of bathing suits as part of the 2013 International Coastal Cleanup.

The collaboration between the Ocean Conservancy and Audubon invites volunteers to both collect trash and record their findings for an annual report about shoreline waste and the best policies to address it.

This year, beach captains on sands around the state will head cleanups on Saturday beginning at 9 a.m. Information on cleanups in Westerly and Charlestown is listed below.

To participate, contact the local cleanup leader. For questions or to sign up as a beach captain, contact Jon Scoones at (401) 949-5454 x3044 or jscoones@asri.org
