After a chilly morning of cleaning, each volunteer returned with a hemp bag filled with trash. Altogether, everyone was able to collect around 220 pounds of trash! We are so proud of everyone who came out to help make a difference! Most of the trash that was found were all various plastics. This acts as a reminder just how problematic plastic pollution can be in our environment. Check out the video below to watch how the day went!

Our latest shoreline cleanup at Matheson Hammock proved just how much trash can become trapped in mangroves habitats. With hundreds of participants at the cleanup, it is no wonder we collected over 5,000 pounds of trash and recyclables!
