Coastal Clean-Up Ponto Beach, Carlsbad, CA
PanGIS staff came out in support of our waterways for the 35th annual Coastal Cleanup Day. In just three hours, more than 6,800 volunteers cleared nearly 145,000 pounds of debris from streets, canyons, parks, and the coastline in communities to make a positive impact on the entire region.
The day’s environmental protection effort took place at 108 sites around the region and prevented the equivalent of six garbage trucks emptying their contents into the ocean.
