Report Details

Went out on the mile watch with a number of new volunteers. It was overall a pretty cool morning and not many people were out on the beach. And for the most part, there was very little trash. Since most the volunteers were new, we were unable to note a great deal of change. The beach mile was looking pretty good overall.
