Report Details

This was a very positive day for us to observe in that we encountered a young woman walking the beach and picking up debris. She helped us spot and retrieve a long fluorescent light bulb. Then upon our second drive-thru we noted a park ranger with the back of his pickup loaded with large debris he had picked up from the beach.Great knowing we are not alone trying to keep our beach clean!
