Summary of the 09.17.2016 BYC Shoreline Cleanup!

The Cleanup Crew

A special thanks to our BYC shoreline cleanup volunteers that included Terry and Wil Hand and Michael and Dylan Whitfield. Our mission was to participate in shoreline cleanups to “Help Keep the Berkeley Shoreline Plastic Free”!We all participated in the local shoreline cleanup Saturday 09.17.2016 along our BYC rocky coast for the International Coastal Cleanup. Patty Donald from the Shorebird Park Nature Center was in charge of this annual California State Coastal Cleanup Event which is the state’s largest volunteer event and is combined with the International Coastal Cleanup. We went behind Sea Breeze Market for the Safety Talk. We collected so much garbage and plastic under and near the rocks along our BYC rocky coast. Please view the photos that I took in the morning of our cleanup! These photos were all the participants and all the very messy marine debris that was removed from our rocky coast. More pictures are attached at the end of this post.Sincerely,Carol A. Keiper, Participant in the cleanup and Chair of the BYC Ocean Stewardship Committee
