During the two-hour cleanup, the volunteers picked up approximately 80 bags of trash and recycling along a half mile of the Courtney Campbell Causeway near the Courtney Campbell Boat Ramp, doing so by foot and by boat. Afterward, the volunteers were invited to participate in the After Trash Beach Bash at Whiskey Joe's for family fun and food. Thank you to everyone who participated this year!
