Thank You For Joining Us for the 2018 International Coastal Cleanup Day!

The Great Laguna Clean-Up on September 15, part of International Coastal Cleanup, was awesome! Thank you to the 90 volunteers of all ages who came out to pick up everything from microtrash and recyclables, to shopping carts and an old lawnmower! Thanks to Sonic for participating and providing lunch! Now, those hundreds of pounds of trash will not pollute the Laguna or flow out to the Russian River to the sea.
