NRCS Pitches in to Help Clean Up Our Coasts!

Mayagüez CoastWeeks activity coordinator, SCT Yadira Feliciano, delivers instructions to the group.

On Saturday, September 21st, NRCS Mayagüez Field Office and Soil Science Division employees, along with Earth Team volunteers, participated in the International Coastal Cleanup Day, collecting and classifying 335 pounds of garbage from the Mayagüez coastline!

The cleanup was a joint effort between NRCS and DRNA. DRNA Mayagüez Regional Director, Efraín García, and personnel provided gloves and bags, and disposed of all the garbage collected. Kudos to our NRCS and DRNA staff and Earth Team volunteers for all their hard work!

For more information, please contact Activity Coordinator and Soil Conservation Technician, Yadira Feliciano, at 787-831-3464 x.104.
