    TOMS RIVER, NEW JERSEY While in the classroom students at Ocean County Vocational Technical School (OCVTS) learn the skills which build a foundation for their future careers. They are also taught the importance of volunteering in their communities and making a difference. This past week students from both the OCVTS Marine Trades Program and the Small Engine Repair Program spent the day at Cattus Island County Park in Toms River, some by boat, some by land, on a quest to clean the bayside beaches and surrounding marshlands. This annual beach cleanup was spearheaded by Marine Trades Instructor Rob Berenwick.

    Students scoured the shoreline and marshes filling garbage bags with debris. OCVTS Instructor Jim Lowda piloted the school’s 21 foot center console along the remote areas of shoreline and several students onboard filled the boat with debris. Piles of garbage were collected including such things, crab traps, wood planks, plastic containers, and tires. The garbage was then loaded into park vehicles and taken away.
