I wanted to thank all the many volunteers for a successful Fall Great Islands Cleanup and celebration of National Park Lands Day. On September 29, more than 50 Lopezians came out on a sunny but breezy day to collect litter from our roads and beaches. 519 pounds of litter was collected with 109 pounds diverted to recycling at the Materials Recovery Facility "MRF" between the Public Works building next to the Dump. We cleaned 18 miles of our roads and 6.5 miles of beach!

Thanks to all that participated and we look forward to Spring Great Islands Cleanup next April.
