In hours, how much time did you volunteer?
Describe your volunteer activities in detail.
At Huntington Beach we walked around in the sand near the ocean and picked up all the trash that we could in 3 hours. There was a lot of plastic food trash and styrofoam covered with sand.
What were your accomplishments?
We accomplished picking up a lot of trash. Therefore, we helped make Huntington Beach much cleaner and naturally beautiful.
What did you learn?
I learned that it takes a lot of effort to clean up areas in the environment to make them be healthy and beautiful. Although it might not have looked at first glance like there was a lot of trash at the beach, there actually was a lot for us to pick up that was hidden in the sand and stuck in seaweed. People need to start making a point of protecting, preserving, and cleaning up the natural environment so places like this beach can be beautiful natural environments for people to enjoy.
