Beach Clean-Up

We had to change the location. Please note we are at the Monterey State Beach not Marina.

The Snowy plovers are nesting and we are not allowed to hold any events between Monterey State beach and Zumdowski State Beach from March through September.

 

Please call or email Robert Goetz  if you have questions or get lost.

    ..you guys are SO awesome! Thanks Robert for hosting and being involved in keeping our shores clean. The next time I'm out in the water (on my board) and look out at an untrashed beach....I'll (we'll) be thinkin' of YOU!!

    I arrived about 10:15, (it took some time to find a good free parking place) and couldn't find a soul. I pulled out my trusty trash grabber, and my trash pail, and picked up a surprising amount of trash this morning. I finally met Larry, then Clair, then Tyler, and finally Marco and Michelle. While the organization may have been haphazard, the weather and beach conditions were wonderful. Were the three shorebirds with the down-curved bills curlews or marbled godwits?

      I haven't made it out there yet with all of you, but I must comment. I believe those are 'curlews' with the slightly down-curved bill...related to the sandpiper. I see them on the beach walking, digging for small crabs, worms, etc. and the godwits have a slightly upturned bill. I love watching shorebirdies!

    Good conversations with other surfriders, some informing of folks at the beach, possible new connections with divers

    Thank you to everyone that showed up this morning. It was fun and now the beach is cleaner.

    I was in the parking lot at 10am and couldn't find anyone....maybe in the wrong parking lot. I hope to find the right place next time. Picking up trash as I go....

    ...I am SO sorry Surfriders! I'll have to make the next one. the Big Sur Marathon only comes once a year and I'm supporting some friends while they run this grueling race. It's "high five" at the finish line. ...then I'm off to work - busy day!!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
