Boy Scouts at Earth Day Cleanup

Boy Scouts at Earth Day Cleanup

30 volunteers participated in our Earth Day Beach Cleanup at Mirada Surf in El Granada, CA on Sunday, April 23, 2011.

Two Boy Scouts hauled back part of a broken Safeway shopping cart and a broken-down grill.

The strangest item was the plastic horse from a child’s rocking horse!

We hope you’ll join us in September for our next beach cleanup!
