A group of about a dozen volunteers combed Willows Beach on Saturday morning, looking for any bit of garbage to pick up. In an hour’s work, we managed to get a half a bag of returnable containers, and the remaining bags were filled with garbage.

The most common item again was cigarette butts, found in the sand, along the walkway, on the rocks, and concentrated around logs on the beach. I couldn’t take two steps without seeing a butt, and picked up hundreds in the hour we were there. The largest item was likely the pair of sand filled shorts. I will leave to your imagination the other treasures we found!

Thanks so much to the volunteers who came out to help!
