Bolsa Chica Jetty Raptober Clean Up

A Large Beach Clean Up @ the Bolsa Chica Jetty was held in conjunction with "Rise Above Plastics" awareness month for October and Surfrider Foundation Global participation contest of "One foot at a Time". It was a fun learning process for the volunteers using parts of their trash on Halloween templates and learning about plastic pollution and its affects on our environment.
