Location: Deering Point
Date: November 25th, 2017
Number of volunteers: 85 volunteers
Trash collected: about 230 pounds
Highlights: In order to help the staff at Deering Estate and Ocean Conservancy in their data collection, We Are Nature volunteers noted the various types of items collected in order to help the Ocean Conservancy in their research. Volunteers were astonished by the number of plastic items they discovered. Our volunteers found many interesting items, including a religious figurine and a car tire! We thank the many committed volunteers that attended the cleanup, including the members of Coral Reef National Honor Society. Much thanks to our team leaders Dominic for hosting this cleanup, and collecting donations for their organization, the Free Clinic Corporation, as part of their partnership with We Are Nature.
