21 volunteers showed up to Valley West Arcata for a community cleanup around the area with CPP, Growing Us, and PacOut Green Team! There was an awesome marble hunt during the cleanup with locally made marbles by Topher Reynolds, with a very large one that went into the raffle at the end of the cleanup! The trash recovered, an estimated 1500 lb., consisted of the usual suspects like convenience packaging, single use plastics, cigarette butts, and some not so usual items like 2 chairs, an imitation gator/snake skin hand bag, a beekeeper’s helmet/mask, and a stack of new plates.
Thanks to everyone for coming out and don’t forget to enter the Growing Us photo contest by for your chance to win some awesome prizes. Follow instructions below for your chance to win!
