New Volunteer, Marsha Floyd picks up 7 bags of trash

We have a new volunteer, Marsha Floyd who lives in the central part of the state, but she is so dedicated that she drove all the way here for our spring organizational meeting----how awesome is that?

Marsha was here last week and got up early every day of her vacation to walk the beach in the hopes of finding turtle tracks.  She did not yet find tracks but she did find 7 bags of trash.  John and I actually saw her when we were walking zone 4 last week.  You can read her report below:

Hey Ginger, it was great seeing you and John on the beach the other morning. I walked every morning at 5:45 but never found any tracks, hopefully you guys will find some soon. I walked 4 miles this morning before we left. I wanted to let you know that I picked up trash each morning (a total of 7 full plastic bags for the week) including 2 chairs, a football and 2 towels. You can add that to your total. Have a great summer and I hope to hear we have some nest soon!


  1. Thank you for being exemplary citizens! I hope more people will realize that maintaining cleanliness is our obligation to nature. Seven bags of trash isn't a good number, because it means there are still many people who are irresponsible in disposing of waste along the beach.

    1. Thank you Irma for your comments. I agree with you---I feel it is our responsibility to be good stewards of the earth.
