Beach Cleanup 1 Beach Cleanup 1
The group went to Goleta beach to pick up trash and beautify our environment. We exhumed an old tire that had been mostly buried in the sand for who knows how long - we rolled it up the hill and left it with the rest of our trash, to be picked up by our contact in Goleta. Unfortunately, we lost contact with that contact after they apparently picked up most of our trash while we were still down on the beach, so we didn't get a chance for a photo with the huge pile we'd already picked up.
