Coastal cleanup deemed a success

More than 40 community members collected upwards of 265 pounds of trash and 15 pounds of recycling from Kings Beach and Moon Dunes Beach as part of Coastal Cleanup Day on Sept. 16.

“Overall, the turnout and the drive to clean the beaches went extremely well,” said Lily Galli, the outreach coordinator with League to Save Lake Tahoe.. “I was thrilled to see local community involvement.”

Cigarette butts were, as anticipated, the most common trash item. And the crew patrolling Moon Dunes Beach even found a sunken sail boat.

In conjunction with California State Parks and Tahoe City Public Utilities District, the League will host another opportunity for hands-on restoration – the 9th annual Tahoe Forest Stewardship Day. The event will be 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Skylandia State Park in Lake Forest on Oct. 7.
