We were happy to see the burnt out RV removed promptly off the Peninsula after submitting concerns to multiple agencies regarding the toxic threat it posed to the surrounding area once the rains hit. There is still a mess left behind from the RV, Surfrider and volunteers plan on tackling that mess tomorrow morning. We could use your help!! Please join us in the morning at the first parking lot “Power Poles” on the Peninsula. We will meet at 10am and disperse to the areas that need the most attention.
LETS GETS THIS MESS CLEANED UP!
Thank you letter to Virginia Bass and Mark Lovelace:
Virginia and Mark,
Thanks very much for facilitating a quick response by the county to get that
burnt wreck removed from the peninsula last week. I was very pleased to see
it gone the next time I drove out that way after initiating contact with
There is still quite a mess all around the surrounding area, but we’ve
continued to have very good weather so hopefully it has not yet been moved
around too much.
It so happens that Surfrider already planned to do our monthly beach cleanup
this coming Saturday a bit further north up the peninsula. We talked about
it at our regular member meeting earlier this week and agreed to move down
to the trailer site once our group has gathered. We’ll bring rakes,
shovels, CalTrans trash bags, and the appropriate safety gear (hi-vis vests,
hard hats, gloves) and remove leftover debris whatever we’re able to.
We will document the process as well and will update you next week. In the
meantime, please feel free to spread the word if you know of anyone else in
the community who might like to pitch in. We meet Saturday at 10am at the
“first Power Poles parking lot” just south of the Samoa bridge.
