Love Your Ocean
Annually, the Leduc Center has engaged students in shoreline clean ups during September as part of COASTSWEEP, a statewide coastal cleanup where volunteers collect marine debris and record what they find to identify sources of marine debris and develop ways to reduce it. This year, in addition to a shoreline clean up, we will also be hosting a youth-focused summit to inform and engage UMass Dartmouth students and local youth on the issue of ocean pollution and possible solutions to improve the health of our oceans. The Summit will be held at SMAST East (836 South Rodney French Boulevard, New Bedford, MA 02744) Registration for both the Summit and the shoreline clean up are online at: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1e9isOsHwEr4UxJESQHvwsPtBOQfl3LrCVvBViHtbKT8/edit?ts=5b6c8117 For questions or more information, please contact Deirdre Healy at the Leduc Center, 508.999.8641 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
