2009 Coastal Clean-Up report

On a sunny September morning, a group of enthusiastic Mendocino Group volunteers enjoyed a ride courtesy of the Skunk Train to our Coastal Clean Up site along Pudding Creek.

We met at the Depot in Fort Bragg with our bags, buckets, gloves and gear, and rode the vintage train up along Pudding Creek where we disembarked near the dump site.

We worked to remove piles of trash at an old encampment that had accumulated old food, moldy tents, bottles and an assortment of other debris. We filled and transported bags of trash down to the tracks, where it was picked up by the Skunk Train's maintenance train.

At the end of our morning, we hiked up to volunteers Anne and Mike's house for a post work-day potluck which included delicious grilled chicken. It was an enjoyable finish to our Coastal Clean-Up efforts.
