Thanks to everyone who participated in the 2011 NH Coastal Cleanup! It was a beautiful day to be on the beach and it sounds like we had many successful cleanups all over the state!
On Saturday, seventeen troops from the Girl Scouts of the Green and White Mountains cleaned up Route 1A in Rye and removed over 1,000 pounds of trash! Here are some great photos of Loudon Cadette Troop #12356.
Another big thanks to the students from Winnacunnet High School who also participated in the NH Coastal Cleanup! Last Thursday they removed about 4,000 pounds of trash from Fox Point in Newington!

2010 New Hampshire Coastal Cleanup
This is a perfect time to join a cleanup, as the Mother of All Beach Cleanups - the International Coastal Cleanup - is coming up on Saturday, September 17, 2011. Last year, over 600,000 volunteers participated worldwide - and picked up 8 million pounds of trash!
Here in New Hampshire, over 1,300 volunteers picked up over 6,000 pounds of trash along 19 miles of coastline. Can you guess what the #1 item was, and how many we found? Leave your guess in the comments!
Whether you're in New Hampshire or Nigeria, on the ocean or inland, there's likely a cleanup somewhere near you. Click here to check out the Ocean Conservancy's site, which allows you to search for and sign up for a cleanup.
If you're in New Hampshire, I look forward to seeing you on the 17th!
