EVENTS: River Cleanups


Friends of Bass River partnered with the Town of Yarmouth conservation department to host Coastsweep on September 23, 2017. Despite some less-than-perfect weather, 25 dedicated volunteers met at Smuggler’s Beach and managed to collect from our shores thousands of cigarette butts, hundreds of food wrappers and takeout containers, 298 yards of fishing line, 89 plastic shopping bags and 300 beverage bottles.
On November 18, FOBR volunteers gathered once again and removed almost 600 lbs. of trash from Bass River beaches and shores that were hit hard by fall storms.

We are so grateful to these wonderful volunteers for stepping up and donating their time on a Saturday morning. We will be planning more river clean ups in the spring so please check back for details in the coming months
