Coastal Cleanup Day a Success!

Save bags!  Bring your own bucket

Coastal Cleanup Day was Saturday, September 16th 9am-Noon.  SGERC sponsored the cleanup again this year, and even though the lagoon had not yet breached, many pounds of trash and recycleable were removed from the beach, picnic, and parking areas.

After a brief orientation, volunteers worked in teams to collect debris and record the trash picked up.  Data collected from these events guide efforts to reduce trash and their impacts on the environment.  Picking up the trash ... well, you immediately see the difference!

Parking for volunteers is free at San Gregorio State Beach.

(Did you know that 80% of trash that enters the ocean from California comes from inland areas?)
