  • Erosion
April 23, 2022 - BerrieC

Erosion has abated on Mile 290 since that which occurred during the winter.  The northern and central sections of Camp Magruder have sustained the highest loss of bluffs and trees. The southern beachfront of Magruder and the adjacent beach down to Barview Jetty do not appear to have experienced any erosion comparable to the sections to more

It was great to see so may people enjoying the beach. Parking is limited with most of the jetty parking lot blocked due to the Sough Jetty repair work.  Lots of driftwood has accumulated. Very little trash of any kind. My guess is that I have others picking up trash on a more

Large Fishing boat stranded on the sand above the high tide line about 100' from north jetty rocks.  Boat came in sometime Saturday, 8/14.  Several people (with one piece of heavy equipment) were trying to move the boat.  When we left, they were still working on it.  Could not more

Four of us walked mile 290 collecting abt 40lbs of trash.   A good percent of which was from the fishing industry .  We saw 2 dead sea lions . One appeared to have been shot.   The second had had it's teeth removed and had no visble wound.  We also more

June 19, 2020 - Foxglove290

This was my 1st time back on my mile since February.  Lack of trash was surprising to me(see the photo of what I picked up)  Driftwood on the shore was minimal.  We have had a lot of windy days with abundant sand movement which may have buried trash and driftwood. more


December 23, 2019 - Foxglove290

There is a lot of debris washed a shore after this weeks storm.  I picked up trash Saturday and today monday.  Some from the fisheries(big tangles of rope-see photos)  a lot that washed down the rivers and out the bay.

I would love for someone to verify that I have ID'd more

End of summer,  Not much in the way of driftwood left on the beach(campers burn it thru the summer).  The beach was carn clean being it was just a week ago the SOLVE did the fall beach clean-up. 5 dead birds is a concern, I am cusrious as to why?  read more

July 5, 2019 - Foxglove290

My husband and I spent 3 hours (6 man hours)  picking up trash.  We ran into one other couple who were doing the same.   I added their trash lbs to our total count  of 80lbs.  It is reallly frustrating that people don't clean up after themselves.  We did find 2 more

There has not been alot of change since my last report.   We have had only one major rain/wind event this fall. This being so, there has been very little debris deposited on the beaches.  I have taken a few photos just for comparison sake.  The steep "bluff" has been more

Beautiful Indian summer day to walk my mile.  I observed 15 people along with their dogs on the beach and northe jetty. One man was surf fishing. Usually there are people fishing off the jetty but not todya due to the rate the tide was comming in(1.4' per hour) The tide was more

It was one of those rare sunny and almost calm winter days.  Erosion has been less severe than last year.  Overtopping brought more drftwood and sand inland than I have observed in the last 5 years.
