60 Volunteers Clean Up Janes Island Beach
Remove 12 Cubic Yards of Debris

Sixty volunteers participated in the annual Beach Clean-up held at Janes Island State Park on Saturday, September 25th, including thirty Boy Scouts from Pennsylvania. Despite strong winds that made getting to some parts of the island, located near Crisfield, Maryland, a challenge, the group managed to remove more than 12 cubic yards of debris from the beach and shoreline. The annual event is Janes Island’s largest volunteer project and is part of International Coastal Cleanup, sponsored by Ocean Conservancy, a nonprofit group that works to protect the world’s oceans.
