SEA ISLE CITY, N.J. Volunteers are being sought to take part in Sea Isle City's annual Spring Beach Clean-Up on April 26 from 10 a.m. to noon.

The event, planned by the Sea Isle City Environmental Commission, will put participants to work gathering debris from the shoreline and planting 1,000 bay berry and beach plum seedlings in the dunes and on private property.

While cleaning the beaches and dunes, volunteers will document what type of debris is collected. The data will be compiled with similar information from other Shore communities to identify possible pollution issues.

Students who donate their time to the clean-up will be eligible for community service credits.

After the clean-up, all volunteers will be invited to attend a complementary buffet luncheon at Mike's Seafood Market & Dockside Restaurant in Fish Alley, provided by owner Mike Monichetti and his family.

Pre-registration is not required. Participants can register on the morning of the event at John F. Kennedy Boulevard and the Promenade, where environmental commission members will give out supplies and tickets for the luncheon.
