The Sea Isle City Environmental Commission will host its annual autumn beach cleanup and dune grass planting 10 a.m.-noon Saturday, Oct. 13. Families, individuals, civic groups, Scout troops and all other volunteers are welcome to join the effort.

Volunteers will collect trash and debris from the beaches from First Street to Townsends Inlet while documenting what type of items they find. The data will be sent to Clean Ocean Action, an environmental organization that works to protect New Jersey’s waterways.

Meanwhile, other volunteers will plant dune grass up and down the shoreline to strengthen the island’s dunes and protect the beaches from erosion.

Volunteers are asked to sign in the day of the event at JFK Boulevard and the promenade, where Environmental Commission members will distribute trash bags and other supplies. No preregistration is required.

Volunteers who wish to plant dune grass are welcome to bring their own small gardening tools.

After the cleanup and dune planting, all volunteers are welcome to a complimentary buffet lunch at Mike’s Seafood Restaurant on Park Road in Sea Isle City’s Fish Alley.

The rain date is Sunday, Oct. 14. For information call 609-263-2081.
