Around Alameda: Coastal Cleanup at Crown Beach

Around Alameda: Coastal Cleanup at Crown Beach

Donna Eyestone

Alamedans combed Robert W. Crown State Beach on Saturday as part of the 29th Annual California Coastal Cleanup Day. They were among the more than 50,000 volunteers who volunteered for cleanup duty at 850 sites across the state; preliminary data released by the California Coastal Commission on Saturday show that volunteers cleared 251 tons of trash and recyclables off of California's beaches and inland shores. Here in Alameda, participants cleared cigarette butts, food wrappers, straws, balloons and more off of Crown Beach; Donna Eyestone captured the story on this video.
