On Sunday January 13th, over a dozen students from San Marcos’ Earth Club participated in a community wide beach cleanup at Arroyo Burro Beach. The beach cleanup was organized by Explore Ecology which is a large volunteer group dedicated to keeping our environment clean and healthy. From 10:00 A.M. to 4:00 P.M. students and citizens from all across the community came out and helped pick up hundreds of pieces of trash. Armed with buckets and gloves, volunteers walked down the beach collecting a variety of items including cigarette butts, plastic bags, and a surprising number of rusty nails. Explore Ecology hopes to have twice as many participants at their next beach cleanup so we can keep our beaches clean and healthy for a long time.
