Crewmembers from Coast Guard Station Barnegat Light, N.J., participated in the Barnegat Bay Blitz watershed-wide cleanup May 9, 2012 near Barnegat Lighthouse State Park on Long Beach Island, N.J.
The event, coordinated by the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection, included volunteers from local schools, local business employees, environmental agency personnel, governmental representatives and Coast Guard members who cleaned up areas in Barnegat Bay’s watershed municipalities.
“It is important for us, the local Coast Guard station, to partner with local agencies and individual volunteers to help preserve our maritime environment. By taking one day of work and dedicating it to cleaning up the environment, we help make it a better place,” said Chief Warrant Officer Jay Greiner, the commanding officer of the station.
