Fall 2021 Great Islands Clean-up a Success!

Posted October 9, 2021 at 5:45 am by

Our islands became much clean­er dur­ing the Great islands Clean-up on Sep­tem­ber 25 thanks to ded­i­cat­ed vol­un­teers on Orcas, San Juan, Shaw, and Lopez Islands. Over 100 Islanders par­tic­i­pat­ed! Total garbage picked up was 2,318 pounds (plus 11 garbage cans and 1 dump­ster). It real­ly does take a vil­lage to care for our home!

Thank you to every­one who got out to help make our islands plas­tic and lit­ter free by the Sal­ish Sea! Islanders are encour­aged to keep up the good work year-round by reduc­ing your plas­tic use and adopt­ing a San Juan Coun­ty beach to help clean regularly.
