What a success! We helped get 1700 pounds of garbage off the beach on July 27th at Pt. Grenville, Taholah on the Quinault Indian Reservation. 40 volunteers showed up- just have a look at our day below.
We braved the fog and cold while beach driving in search of marine debris.
We found a bit of time to make friends and chat about the ocean with volunteers.
We found so much garbage! A few common items were fireworks, fishing gear, rope, but we also found a few curious items like a squirt gun, tires, a piece of a boat trailer, and an entire blue tarp!
If enjoying the beach is for everyone, then cleaning the beach is for everyone!
Join us next time and then enjoy the rest of your day at the beach while you’re at it!
