A group of local citizens spent the morning of June 3 collecting trash that had washed up on Calf Island, which is a unit of the Stewart B. McKinney National Wildlife Refuge.

The event was sponsored by Calf Island Conservancy.

Transportation to and from the island was provided by Beacon Point Marine.

The group collected an amazing amount of debris, including three car tires, innumerable plastic bottles, balls (soccer, basketball, tennis, football, even golf), floats, party balloons, large pieces of styrofoam (presumably from docking floats), lengths of rope, metal pieces that could not have floated to the island, and much else.
