Five Haikus in Honor of the Santa Clara Law School Environmental Law Society Contribution toward the California Coastal Cleanup Day

I had a wonderful Saturday morning with my daughter Gwen-Zoe and the Santa Clara Law School Environmental Law Society students at the Natural Bridges State Beach for the California Coastal Clean-up Day (September 17). In the picture above are Shelby Rogers, Devin, Jessica Atwood, Jojo Choi with dog Bobo, and Gwen-Zoe and me.  Unfortunately, I have not gotten the group picture with all the participants yet, but the turn- out was great! Some 25-30 students from the ELS, my torts course, and friends.  I will post that group picture when it becomes available to me.  By my estimate, we must have collected more than 50 pounds of trash.

Here are 5 haikus I wrote in honor of the terrific effort by the next generation of Santa Clara lawyers toward helping to fix the environment, as well as that of the following generation of my daughter

Natural Bridges Beach
Coastal Clean-up Day
Students pick much trash

Daughter Gwen helped out
Garbage found is plentiful
Use less packaging

Many strange objects
Bong on the beach? Rocking chair!
Yard sale potential?

Check nearby places
Finding homeless encampments
Unknown waste galore

Garbage on the cliffs
Devin is a daredevil
Liability?

 

**** Update – group picture, but I think a few students are still missing
