On Saturday, Cate School and Friends of Bates Beach coordinated the cleanup of North Rincon (Bates) Beach as part of the annual California Coastal Cleanup Day.

Twelve students joined 19 other volunteers to pick up trash and recyclables for three hours along the 2.5-mile beach and the hiking trail above. About 90 pounds of trash was eventually collected from the area.

Coastal Cleanup Day happens each year on the third Saturday in September. 38 beaches and hiking trails in Santa Barbara were cleaned at the same time by different teams of volunteers, gathering over 2 tons of trash in the process. Beaches up and down the California coast were also cleaned up.

This was the first time that Cate school had sent volunteers and the students seemed to really enjoy participating.

Pulling back the covers…a boarding school in the middle of a sexual abuse scandal allies with a clothing optional adult group….
Is their board is as ignorant and deceptive as Thacher’s was?
