In recent years, the coastline of New Jersey has taken a bit of a beating, from both tropical storms which have devastated the landscape to reality television shows that have given its reputation a beating. The reality of the Jersey Shore goes beyond television shows, though, as there are real problems facing the ecosystems of the beaches lining the coast. This weekend, area residents will be doing something about it, volunteering to clean up the shore’s beaches. More than 1400 volunteers are expected to show up and clear trash and debris as part of Clean Ocean Action’s 28th Annual Fall Sweeps.
