The Water Resources team from Alta Environmental came out on Saturday, April 27, 2019 to help I Love a Clean San Diego with their 17th annual Creek to Bay cleanup. Our small but mighty team scoured Tamarack State Beach for two hours from the Agua Hedionda Lagoon inlet to the warm water jetty in front on the power station in Carlsbad, CA (approximately 1,500 feet).
Using our own buckets and disposable gloves, the Alta team picked up some interesting items, including a boot, orange juice press, sand toys, plenty of salt and pepper packets and lots and lots of plastic. “It’s amazing how many items we found just by digging through the wrack line on what appeared to be a clean beach,” said Lisa Kay, Alta Environmental President. “We’re happy to keep all that plastic out of the water and out of the way of local wildlife.”
