Cali Paddler had a tremendous time this past Saturday as many of our tribe came out to join us and make a difference. On the morning of July 5th, over 25 paddlers got together in San Diego to pick up trash along the beach and waterways of Mission Bay. 13 full kitchen bags of trash were collected, much of it at low tide where the incoming waters would have swept it out to sea for fish, turtles and sea life to mistake for food. During the cleanup, bagels, coffee and great conversation were consumed. Afterwards, a little scavenger hunt was held for paddlers to find a special treasure on nearby crescent island.
A special shout out goes to all the paddlers who, in different locations in the state, held their own cleanups. If its just one piece of trash, it still makes a difference! You folks embody what it means to be E.P.I.C. Thank you.
