Coastal Cleanup at Gloucester's Eastern Point

Eastern Point in Gloucester is a hotspot for fishing hobbyists. Located at the mouth of Gloucester Harbor, the site is a sanctuary to fish and terrestrial animals alike. Because of the popularity of the site and rip currents, however, the region often collects marine debris, including pounds of derelict fishing gear.

If you're looking to spend some more time outside this Earth Day then we have just the event for you! We will be assisting Mass Audbubon's Eastern Point Wildlife Sanctuary in a cleanup of the Gloucester jetty and surrounding area. This will help get this popular fishing spot clean for wildlife and prep it for the upcoming season. 

Have a look at the volunteers from one of our past Eastern Point Cleanups!
