Clean Ocean Action





KNOCK KNOCK…who’s there? Not Clean Ocean Action! (COA)

COA does not go door-to-door. We do not solicit funds or signatures, or distribute information through canvassing. If you have questions or concerns, COA suggests contacting your town administrator. Please further note that Clean Ocean Action has no financial affiliation with the organization called Clean Water Action (formerly known as NJ Environmental Federation) or any other canvasing organization.

Please note: The Long Branch Beach Sweep will no longer be held at Melrose Terrace. 

The Long Branch Beach Sweep will now be held at 2 S. Bath Ave.
