26 wonderful human beings and #Lucythewonderdoodle joined us for our monthly 3205 Beach Patrol this morning.

Heaps of plastic - straws, soy sauce tops, Chupa Chup sticks, tiny bits - were removed from the beach, and stayed out of the tummies of our local wildlife.

We focused on nurdles - plastic resin pellets that are used to make plastic products - and found lots, even though there's no plastic production nearby! Boo! Industry: clean up your act!

Special thanks to those who came from far away to support our local beaches! Brunswick, Brighton, and even to tourists from Portland Oregon in America!
