Report Details

Lots of dritwood accumulation along the southern portion of mile 290.  We picked up approximately 2 lbs of trash, a lot less than other mile walks.  My most interesting find is what I believe was a skate egg case, this one was bigger than my hand.  In past years I have observed pines falling towards the beach along Camp McGruder property, this year there seemed to be more. (see photos)
