This was a very calm, very easy volunteer opportunity to complete. The head organizers were very friendly and immediately got us integrated to begin working. They supplied bags, gloves, long reach picker-uppers, and even sifters. The work was relaxing actually. You walk along the beach and pick up any trash/recyclable you encounter. It was only an hour long. At the end, when you return the bags of trash, they weigh them and somewhat make it into a friendly competition. They announce who got the highest. I thought that was a great touch. Overall, great experience. I will return.
Great turnout of people, plenty of supplies for those who didn't bring any, and a very cheerful group of reps from the organization. They also make an effort to track all the trash picked up at the event, which undoubtedly helps inspire a feeling of accomplishment for the volunteers.
