Santa Clara Law Environmental Law Society Beach Cleanup 2017



The 2017 Santa Clara Law Environmental Law Society Beach Clean-up Activity was another success!  I joined about 15 students and friends on Saturday morning at Natural

Bridges State Beach for several hours of beachcombing for trash.  We were not the only folks out there; there were groups of boy scouts, individual families, and other community groups.  (From the matching T-shirts, it looked liked the local Sony Company office had a group there as well.)  While the morning was overcast, it was a actually quite a beautiful place.  My small group (Laura, Cynthia, Ayla, and Robin) came up with about 20 pounds of trash, including many small items like cigarette butts and food wrappers to some water and beer bottles.  (The photo of somebody in the brush is of me going after some plastic plates that had been thrown deep into the bushes.  Boooooh, not cool. . . ) Quite amazing how things add up.  Another small group came up with more than 40 pounds of trash.

IMG_6419Beyond the typical trash, here were some other items of interest:  an improvised bong (yes, you read that  correctly), lots of shoes, a gasoline can, a propane torch, and an orange traffic cone (not near the road, but deep inside the bushes).  Sadly, we also came across a dead sea-otter.  A rather large animal.  All we could was to report it to the state park official onsite.

All in all, it was a great occasion of community service.  Hooray for the Santa Clara Law Environmental Law Society and all the other folks across the state that pitched in for this year’s coastal clean-up!

Update – 6 Haikus in honor of the SCU Environmental Law Society Beach Clean-up.

I regularly post such items when they come across my email or I become aware of them otherwise.  A lot of what I post is related to non-profit, academic, or the government sector (including international organizations).  These items are usually sorted below the blog entries that I write about substantive issues and thus come further down on the front page.  The easier way to view these opportunities postings is to click on the “Jobs and Other Opportunities” link at the top of the blog page.
