Our project will be cleaning up portions of one of our favorite beaches. We will be looking for trash and picking it up!

Our project will hopefully stop some pollution from evading our waters. We will hold bakesales, create a video to show, and speak to others about this issue. Hopefully, together, we can stop some of this. If you would like to watch our video, go to https://biteable.com/watch/ocean-life-matters-1382120 now!

We would like to educate and inspire San Diego citizens to keep our city clean and green. We will facilitate and participate in beach and park clean-ups. To educate our citizens, we will take part in fairs and local events to share our enthusiasm. To inspire citizens, we offer networking opportunities and support for each other in this endeavor.

As homeschoolers, we say the world is our classroom. Sadly, many of our "classrooms" are not cared for. Our group meets at our local beach for environmental science classes, hiking, birding, picnics, swimming, and other fun activities. We always find so much trash on the beach and I want to organize something that will help clean it up. A major concern I have is all the plastic that is left behind or washes up from other places. I've done a lot of research on this that I’ve shared on my Facebook page, C.A.R.E., Community for Animal Respect and Education. Things like balloons and plastic straws are very lethal to sea life and humans. From choking hazards to plastics leaching chemicals into our water. People need to be more responsible. If we receive a grant, we will utilize it to purchase materials for the clean-up including biodegradable protective gloves, recyclable garbage bags, rakes, and special boxes for sharp objects (only an adult will be allowed to pick up hazardous materials and safely dispose of) and other clean-up materials. There are a few hundred followers in my C.A.R.E. group through social media, but we have several hundred active families in our homeschool group. By cleaning up the beach a bunch of times, we’ll be able to get many people involved. When other beach goers see us doing the clean-ups, hopefully that will encourage them to also help keep our beaches clean. During each beach clean-up, we will record the type (for example plastic, glass, metal, etc.) and amount of trash. Our group will be split up into smaller groups and each group will have certain areas of the beach to clean-up. Some people will help with trash collection and one from each group will record the information. There will be at least one adult to guide and help each team. Every few weeks, we will return to the beaches and repeat the same process of recording the litter and cleaning it up. Hopefully, we will see a reduction in litter by using our data.

We advertised in the school and spread the word! It's an annual event and many families come.

To make our wishes come true, we will contact the city of Boulder, create and post and educational sign, get rid of old tires, add fish, get more trash cans, add more water, make animal crossing signs, add sprinklers, clean dog poop, pick up trash on the playground, share our information with others, add a filtration system, and clean up trash in and around the pond

Every season the Kawartha Park Nature Clean Up Crew organize various trash collecting projects. We focus mostly on roadside trash pickup and beach clean up. New garbage pops up daily it seems, and the beach is constantly being littered with blue styrofoam that washes up from the docks on the lake. Let's keep nature beautiful!! Interested in joining our crew? Know of an area of nature that needs some extra love? Join the fun for some hands on nature learning and give back to nature!

We pick up trash at least once a week that has washed up or is exposed at low tide on the local beaches around Puget Sound. We reuse plastic shopping bags and recycle the trash picked up. Although our efforts are a "drop in the bucket" in comparison to the trash found in the world's oceans, we hope that others will do the same at their local beaches. Even if only one bird or fish or other marine wildlife is saved by our efforts, it is worth it to us. Additionally, we are cleaning up the beach and eliminating trash from accumulating. We started this project in December of 2015. It will never end for us.
