This week’s episode sidelined by illegal dumping!

This week’s episode sidelined by illegal dumping!

December 1, 2020

Hey friends! I usually spend Mondays assembling the week's Protect & Enjoy episode, but things went awry yesterday when Humboldt media posted a video of some dudes dumping a big ol' pile of trash right down the road from my house! As a result, I spent the hours I would've been working on the podcast helping pick up someone else's grody garbage (full story at the link above).

This is a recurring problem along the peninsula where I live, unfortunately, and certainly not limited to our area.

The good news is, area residents and nonprofits, including Surfrider, have formed a coalition to try to find some positive ways to deter the dumping and protect the beach and bay. Progress is being made! 

So, apologies for not providing an audio update this week, but check out Mandy's blog post for a look at current activities and campaigns – and we'll be back next week!
