Coastal Cleanup Day – Saturday, Sept 20th

The Mendocino County Chapter of the Surfrider Foundation sponsored the Ward Ave. beach clean up as part of the statewide California Coastal Cleanup Day event organized by the California Coastal Commission. Dianne and Brennan are the Co-Captains for the fourth year in row. Coastal Cleanup Day is a great way for families, students, service groups, and neighbors to join together to take care of our fragile marine environment, show community support for our shared natural resources, and to have fun!
