Coastal Cleanup Local Results

These photos were taken at Ocean Avenue Beach Park in Melbourne Beach. As you can see in the first photo, Saturday was a delightful day to be at the beach.

The second photo is of the Keep Brevard Beautiful coastal cleanup check-in site. The picture was taken about 10:00 in the morning, and you can see a respectable collection of white trash bags midway through the four-hour event.

Florida Today reports the following stats for Brevard County: 1,125 volunteers, 27,375 pounds of trash collected (vs 35, 553 collected last year). Good job!

We'll report Ocean Conservancy stats when they become available.
