Salem Sound Coastwatch works with interested people, children and adults, who want to give back to their communities. Service projects performed with your group or a group we assemble can make a dent in the much needed effort to protect and improve our coastal watershed, coastline and ocean.
SSCW offers volunteer opportunities, whether you want to get your hands dirty and learn a little wetlands ecology in our saltmarsh monitoring programs or participate in something as simple as a beach cleanup. SSCW also welcomes your ideas on how to improve the waters and beautiful coastline that makes up Salem Sound.
Try one of these activities for your service project:
- Stencil storm drains
- Pull pepperweed
- Remove Oriental bittersweet
- Plant some trees
- Clean-up Beaches with International Coastsweep or
our Adopt a Beach
Salem Academy and Salem Boys and Girls Club stencil storm drains.
Upward Bound pulls pepperweed at Forest River Park for the second year.
