Exploring the gospel principles of earth stewardship

Final 2017 Sandy Beach Service Project Cleans Up!

What do a driver’s license, golf balls, and (literally) a dead duck all have in common? They were found on the eastern shore of Utah Lake Saturday October 7th in LDS Earth Stewardship’s Sandy Beach clean-up project. This was our 5th time cleaning up the beach, and previous efforts combined with enforcement of existing beach rules helped keep our work to a minimum. The Sheriff’s officer patrolling the area told us that enforcement of rules outlawing camping and bonfires on the beach had been increased. It showed! Earlier clean-ups netted two full pickup truck loads of tires and trash. Saturday’s efforts brought in only one tire — and we had to really dig to get it — and half a pickup truck load of trash. The weather was perfect, and all the Volunteers enjoyed getting to explore beautiful Sandy Beach and making it even more beautiful. This project was our last Utah Lake clean-up for the year, but don’t worry — more Service projects will be coming and will be announced here as well on justserve.org. Our thanks to Ryan and Sharlisha and Katrina and Kaeli and Mary and Anne and Halli and Hannah and Jared and Carol and Camryn and Jordan and Conrad and Madison and Natalie for their hard work on this project! Thanks, also, for the one-hundred-and-ten Volunteers that were there for our Family Night on the Jordan River Service project in June, and for the thirty-two who helped out at our earlier Sandy Beach clean-up on May 15th. Let’s Do Service!
