Community volunteers and students from the Del Norte High School Interact Club collected 4,900 pounds of trash from Frontbeach Park and South Beach in Crescent City, as well as the Elk Creek Wetland and Wildlife Area during the Earth Day Cleanup on Friday, April 22, 2022. 

The event successfully removed trash that could have polluted our marine ecosystems along the California North Coast. A big thank you to all the volunteers that assisted on Earth Day and the Del Norte Solid Waste Management Authority for covering transfer station fees. The Smith River Alliance will be hosting additional community cleanups along the California Coast this year, as well as managing the Adopt-A-Beach Program for Del Norte County.
