It's that time of year again! The kids are back at school, the days are getting cooler, and it is time to sneak in a couple last beach days! Please join us on Duxbury Beach, 9-noon on October 5, for the annual COASTSWEEP. Each fall, thousands of volunteers up and down Massachusetts hit the beaches to pick up trash and keep our coast healthy and beautiful. COASTSWEEP is sponsored in MA by the Massachusetts Office of Coastal Zone Management and is part of the International Coastal Cleanup organized by the Ocean Conservancy.
Clean-up supplies will be available but please help reduce plastic waste and keep our oceans and beaches clean & healthy by bringing a bucket and work gloves with you to the clean-up!
Thanks for doing your part to keep Duxbury Beach a place we can all enjoy for generations to come! Sign up here for the Duxbury Beach COASTSWEEP!
Duxbury Beach Needs Big Help
Duxbury Beach has always been one of the greatest attractions of our town where:
families and friends from near and far gather for picnics, cookouts, and campfires.
children are able to explore and enjoy nature’s playground with parents and grandparents.
everyone can swim, walk, throw a Frisbee, or read a book through a long summer afternoon.
Duxbury Beach is one of the primary reasons many of us moved to this beautiful town and is no small factor in the value of our properties today.
Now, Duxbury Beach, the slender arm of sand we love so much, needs us… Needs ALL of us to make a commitment.
One serious threat to Duxbury Beach is rising sea level. Add storm frequency, volatility, and monthly flood tides, and the risk of this fragile barrier breaching escalates significantly, resulting in severe flooding to homes and businesses along Duxbury’s coastline.
Based on detailed research and discussions with many experts, Duxbury Beach Reservation, Inc. (DBR), the non-profit organization that owns Duxbury Beach, has determined that raising the dune structure is the best way to strengthen our beach and prevent coastal flooding.
We ask you to join us in our campaign to protect our coastline and preserve our beautiful barrier beach. Please say “yes” when you receive a request for your help. Donations are 100% tax-deductible. For additional information, email Cris Luttazi (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Please email us if you are interested in participating in our education, fundraising, and event management. Also, we always looking for volunteers to help with grass planting, beach sweep, and snow fencing. We are always happy to have more beach lovers educating, protecting, and preserving. Learn more by contacting email@example.com.
