SUMMARYThe only change from the last quarterly report is an increase in the sand build up over the summer. Also, the SOLV beach clean up was very helpful in collecting accumulated litter. Shells, animal casings, small rocks and wood pieces in driftline. One dead pelican. Moderate human impact (5)-rockhunting. One dog.
