6/9/18 Post Cleanup Report Mad River Beach Park

PacOut Green Team was back out at Mad River Beach Park with 10 volunteers to clean around the parking area, dunes, beach and boat ramp. This event was sponsored by AEGIS Treatment Centers and Sunny Brae Middle School.

We were pleasantly surprised at the small amount of trash we recovered, around 50 lb, On the other hand, there’s still tens of thousands, if not millions of rusty nails, lying ¬†just under the surface of the sand in the dunes just above the parking area. We recovered at least another 50 lb. of nails on top of the regular trash! We’re hoping that the new gates and restricted hours, now day use only, will help to deter the late night bon-fire parties where pallets are burned, which leave behind all of the nails. Time will tell…

Great job everyone! Thanks again for all of the awesome help!
