Samara Beach Cleanup Gathered 250 Pounds

By Pierre Chasle, Voice of Nosara/QCostarica

There was a great turn out in Samara on Saturday, November 24, as more than 50 people gathered for the first beach cleanup organized by CREAR, a nonprofit organization helping kids after school with various educational programs

From Cangrejal to Matapalo, volunteers gathered 250 pounds of trash, including objects of all kind such as old rotten hammocks, inflatable floats, sandals and bottles. The ambiance was festive as Intercultura Language School provided space for the event with food, drinks and games for the kids.

Johanna Waite, program development director for CREAR, is promoting awareness amongst young people of the need to preserve the environment clean and safe. Marea Homeschool, another Samara organization, also helped out with the cleanup.
