On Saturday, September 19, the California Coastal Commission celebrates the 25th anniversary of Coastal Cleanup Day and, here in Big Bear, volunteers are needed to participate in the 10th annual Shoreline Cleanup Day. Last year, Big Bear volunteers showed up in record numbers—532, to be exact—to remove 1,540 pounds of trash from Big Bear Lake’s 16 miles of shoreline, prompting event organizer Alan Sharp to say, “The birds, fish and mammals that make Big Bear Lake their home thank all who participated.” Our local shoreline cleanup, in less than three weeks, will take place from 9am to noon on the 19th. Those who would like to contribute to the effort and/or be a volunteer cleanup leader for their group, church or school are asked to call Alan Sharp at Big Bear Marina at 866-3218.
