Corson's Inlet State Park Beach Cleanup
The South Jersey Chapter of the Surfrider Foundation is teaming up with the state Park Service for a beach cleanup at Corson's Inlet State Park on Saturday Dec. 1.
The cleanup starts at noon, and anybody is invited to join the volunteers at the beach entrance to the park at 59th Street and Central Avenue in Ocean City.
The same group will be participating in Clean Ocean Action's "Waves of Action" with a community cleanup in historic Gardner's Basin, Atlantic City, on Saturday, Dec. 8. The Inlet section of Atlantic City was hit hard by Hurricane Sandy, and the volunteers are anxious to clean up the shoreline as well as the surrounding neighborhoods. That event will be noon to 3 p.m.
Bring buckets, bags, reachers, gloves and fresh water for drinking — and be sure to dress for the weather.
More About Corson's Inlet State Park
Corson's Inlet State Park is 98 acres of undeveloped land at the southern tip of Ocean City. It offers a glimpse of what the island may have looked like hundreds of years ago. The area is a popular spot for fishing, hiking and beachgoing. The park has a public boat ramp used by fishermen and personal watercraft. A system of trails lets hikers explore the dune system, and the remote beaches provide a chance to escape the summer crowds. Access is from a parking lot on the causeway between Ocean City and Strathmere or from 59th Street and the beach in Ocean City.
