Post-Fourth fireworks cleanup slated Monday

PORT ANGELES — Several community organizations will join forces on Monday to clean up debris from Independence Day celebrations on Ediz Hook.

The public is invited to participate in the cleanup, which will begin at 10 a.m. and run until at least noon.

Volunteers from the North Olympic Youth Corps, Washington State University Clallam County Extension Beach Watchers, Olympic Coast Discovery Center and the Feiro Marine Life Center will cooperate to remove trash from Port Angeles Harbor beaches on the Hook.

The state Department of Transportation office in Port Angeles has donated litter pickup bags.

The Clallam County Marine Resources Committee will supply gloves.

Bags and gloves will be distributed to volunteers beginning at 10 a.m. next to the concrete bathrooms near the public boat launch on the Hook.

Event organizers hope to top last year’s beach cleanup, which collected about 600 pounds of trash.

For more information, phone Taylor Schraudner, North Olympic Youth Corps coordinator at 360-504-1201, or David Freed, WSU Beach Watchers program coordinator and Clallam County Marine Resources Committee project coordinator at 360-565-2619.

They were enjoying the last days of nice weather before a predicted rain storm expected this weekend. The Lotzes said they were greeted by at least a dozen seals in the harbor on their leisurely excursion.
