Cleanup Continues Despite Weather

1,300 people planted 421 native trees and shrubs and removed more than 25,000 pounds of mixed waste and recycled materials from various natural areas

Nearly fifty beach cleanup sites are postponed because of the storms hitting the coast.

SOLVE organizers will reschedule those dates in the coming weeks and with the wind and rain this weekend, there should be even more debris to take care of.
