Polar Bear Cleanup Results


Thanks to everyone who came out to the polar bear cleanup on January 1st 2015 at Easton’s Beach. 9AM with artic temperatures a team slowly assembled and by 1PM nearly 20 people helped out to remove 75 pounds of small to medium size marine debris from the shoreline. This included the normal stuff we find on the beach as well as cardboard from the firework shells from New Year’s Eve. It was little cold yesterday to count the debris so that will happen in the coming days. Thanks to Empire Tea & Coffee for providing great coffee.


For 2015, we have developed a new initiative to ensure the sustainability of Clean Ocean Access and encourage program support throughout the community.  Clean Ocean Access is looking for 1000 people to step up and pledge $100 during the coming year.

We are calling it the COA1000 Plan and we need your help to make it a success.

With your gift of $100 or more, you will receive a pledge number that is exclusive to you. This will be your COA1000 number.  In January of each year, you can retain your number by reaffirming your support and renewing your donation. Your continued support will allow us to focus on the work so very important to our mission.

You’d like to donate more than $100?
Great! Feel free to make a larger gift, it allows us to do more. Please use this LINK

The health and natural beauty of our surroundings must be a priority. The COA1000 Plan will guarantee that our core programs and commitment to clean ocean access continue.  We are working hard to acquire grants and other funding that will make a vast network of related activities possible, but first we must raise funds to maintain our core programs.

Thank you!

Clean Ocean Access is a not-for-profit organization. All donations to Clean Ocean Access (COA) after February 20th 2014 are fully tax-deductible by the IRS code 501(C)3. Our federal tax exempt letter is available via this LINK.
