The beach was very active with people clamming, walking, tossing a football,visiting with oddly enough a game of croquet on the beach.

There was practically NO trash or litter on this mile today. Let's hope this continues!read more

It was a nice quiet day for our observation. Just slightly north of our mile was a huge group of about 40+ men from the Army playing football on the beach having come from Camp Rilea. They were dominating a very large area of the beach with this activity. Otherwise...read more

Sorry we were a little late getting this report to you. My pics didn't turn out as ground fog rolled in along the shoreline. The beach is quite clean right now. Lets hope the 4th of July does not bring a lot of trash this year to the beaches.read more

We picked a rather high tide to observe today. We felt there would be more people due to the start of Spring Break for this area.read more

The only oddity on the beach today was ground fog/steam and it was sunny. It was difficult to see up ahead due to this oddity. Otherwise it was a very pleasant day and no one was abusing or littering the beach.Ah, the calm before the Fourth of July!read more

Winter walking ( 8 people, 2 dogs )on the beach after a very high tide earlier in the day.We counted 14 dead common murres probably due to the rough seas ( supposedly 20-22 ft. swells), wind, and rain from the day before.There was kelp everywhere!read more

We picked up two buckets of trash which we later took home to sort which was mostly plastic, Styrofoam, pop cans, and some cardboard. However, we did find a large orange canister ( about a 10 gallon size ) with a label stating refrigerant gas and drove it to Ft...read more

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...read more

This was a very quiet,desolate day for our mile. Must be the time of year and weather as to why it was so isolated today.read more

For such a beautiful day at the beach there were very few people there. Because this was the first Tuesday after SOLV and the beach was very, very clean!read more

It was quiet on the beach considering it was a lower tide and the start of a spring break for many.It appears someone had been driving way up onto the edge of the dune/beach grass area. There was very little debris/garbage to pick up today.read more

June 19, 2010 - alkarbeck
For a Saturday and a low tide, it was a very quiet afternoon. It is difficult to give a total number of people because we have cars driving up and down our mile with multiple occupants.We are still finding plastic bits all along the shore and tide lines.read more
March 20, 2010 - alkarbeck
We observed our mile the afternoon of the beach clean-up so the beach was beautiful and the clean-up was a huge success in our area. Still only a few gulls out and about on our northern beaches.read more

We are submitting this at this time due to the crisis of sick and dying birds. The actual foam on our mile was still there but not as thick just south of us. What was most amazing was as we were picking up the birds people were stopping by in...read more

This was a relatively quiet term even with the summer tourism. However, this was the term of common murres. Dead and ill ( beached) murres have been found all summer. The North Coast Wildlife Center had at one point about 70+ rescued murres needing help which were rescued from Lincoln...read more
