Dockweiler Beach cleanup

Thank you to the West LA Surfrider association for hosting the Volunteers Appreciation Day on Saturday the 8th. Admittedly, the turnout was not that great, but the folks that turned up made a great effort of picking up a lot of trash. I think the bad turnout had a little to do with the reschedule from last weekend's rain out. In any event, the day was great fun and we got to enjoy some great burritos and guac from FreeBirds. Thank you!  I did not realize how hungry I was until I started eating.

What is sad about this beach is how people treat it. Maybe it's because the road is so close, but for some reason people feel it's ok to throw their trash down the bank. Who knows? But, it is, in one word, disgusting, and it’s just a little better after the cleanup.
