Here is how the project went:

The beach looks very clean! We logged our trash collection on the Marine Debris Tracker App (by National Geographic)!

Through this project I/we learned:

How much garbage there really is in the beach. We even saw a seagull stuck in a fishing line and, though we tried, were unable to help it. :(

What I/we might change:

Next time, it might be helpful to have more people involved so we can cover more ground.

My/our favorite part of this project was:

Feeling accomplished that we did something to help the planet 🌍.

Some tips, tricks or fun facts about the project:

If you decide to use the tracker app it will give you data on how much garbage pieces you collected which is cool to see!
