Genentech Give Back team brightens Linda Mar Beach!
After what seems like months of cold overcast weather, the sun shined today and an awesome Genentech Give Back team soaked it up while cleaning the beach and parking lots from the Pedro Point Shopping center to the Rockaway bluff.
We did it! And oh how about Pedro Point!
Finding lots of Velella Velella, a chunk of Whale blubber and sadly a couple of dead birds were reported.
Fifty pounds of trash, 8 pounds of recycle, 1260 cigarette butts, 24 balloons, 168 bottle caps, and 85 straws were collected. Flip flops, cups, Taco Bell condiment packs, micro plastic, and too many plastic pieces to count stunk up a huge red garbage bag.
But this was just in the first hour.
Then this team hiked up the bike path almost to the top and went to work removing weeds from the top switch and on both sides of the bike path.
Wild Radish after wild radish piled up on the tarps and got dumped over the edge to block the social trail down the hill that is eroding the hillside.
A great day for some awesome Earth Heroes!
