Coastal Cleanup Day a Great Success!

By Leslie Robinson Sep 16, 2012 - Trash
Preston and Finn said they had so much fun they want to clean the beach every weekend!

Many thanks to the 847 volunteers who made this year's Coastal Cleanup Day another great success! 2,592 pounds of debris were picked up from our beaches and creeks -- 1,970 pounds of trash and 622 pounds of recyclables.

Some of the more peculiar items found were:

  • Barbie doll
  • Fake finger nails
  • Cat scratcher
  • Gavel
  • Men's briefs
  • Bras
  • Ski jacket
  • High heeled boots

We're always so inspired by the community's support for this annual event.  Thank you to everyone who participated and to all of our partners! 

Mark your calendars for next year's event: Saturday, September 21, 2013!
