The volunteers were "Talkin' Trash" last Saturday as we picked up several hundred pounds of litter. Teams scoured beach, dunes, and maritime forest to return the beach and surroundings back to "pristine" for future visitors.
Some of the exciting things we found:
two totally collapsed, collapsable beach chairs
lots of bottles - like a whole lot
diapers (our concern is that the litterers are breeding)
just about anything else you can think of but shouldn't mention
It was a perfect day for a walk on the beach and we all had that great feeling you get when you know you have done something good for everyone.
It was great to see some new faces. We even had a family that made an afternoon of the cleanup. A special thanks to those non-member volunteers that heard about the cleanup and showed up because they care!
