Thanks to everyone who participated in Coastal Cleanup Day, either at the beach or in their neighborhood. More than 30 volunteers helped at San Gregorio State Beach and picked up 153 gallons of trash and 66 gallons of recyclables! There were also efforts at nearby beaches including Pomponio and Tunitas Creek. Judging from all the smiling faces, everyone really enjoys this effort, which yields immediate results. You not only see the amount of trash you have collected, you see the difference in the area you have left behind.
There are cleanup efforts throughout the year, so you don't have to wait until September to help out. There are monthly cleanups at Tunitas Creek, occasional cleanup days in Cuesta La Honda, and our Adopt-A-Highway program that picks up trash along Hwy. 84. Contact us for more info at firstname.lastname@example.org, or go to our website sgerc.org.
