Beach Cleanup
Thanks to the Ocean Conservancy and in conjunction with its International Coastal Cleanup, VOBEC has historically held a beach cleanup in September. VOBEC organizes the event, debris on the beach is collected by volunteers, and VOBEC submits a summary of debris data to the Ocean Conservancy for tabulation into its annual report. This year we will be coordinating our cleanup efforts with Oakleyville, Point O'Woods, Ocean Bay Park, Seaview, Ocean Beach, Corneille Estates, Summer Club, Robbins Rest, Atlantique.
