Report Details

The beach was quite clean today in spite of the large number of people (10) on a busy three day weekend. We only collected one small bag of trash. There were some vehicle tracks; unusual for this beach. Perhaps they were beach ranger tracks. There were only three cars parked in the Muriel Ponzler lot, so most of the people had likely walked from Washburn Park.
