Big Shell Cleanup 2019 Results

Thanks to all who made our 24th Annual Billy Sandifer Big Shell Beach Cleanup a huge success! Over 1100 volunteers removed over 1700 tons of trash. It as all a tribute to Billy who we last in late March 2018.

Since its inception, more than 9925 volunteers have removed 2,876,000 pounds of trash from this remote and wild stretch of four-wheel-drive-only beach.
