2018 Earth Day Cleanup Event
The 2018 Earth Day cleanup effort was a success. Marine debris was removed from 19 beaches along the Strait of Juan de Fuca by a total of 183 volunteers. An estimated 2,119 lbs. of marine debris was removed from the beaches of which 1,300 lbs. were removed from the 11 beaches near the communities of Clallam Bay – Sekiu. One of this year’s star volunteers was Elsa, who wanted to spend her fifth birthday cleaning the beach at Dungeness Spit so she could "help the animals." In addition to cleaning up the beach she brought cookies for all the other volunteer.
