Plastic waste polluting or marine environments is a major issue that is damaging habitat and wildlife in Skagit County and around the world. One of the sources, monofilament fishing line, is a focus area that CVP volunteers are helping to address. Recycling tubes such as the one shown installed at Heart Lake in Anacortes have been placed at 22 popular fishing locations in our area from Bowman Bay to the Marblemount Fish Hatchery.
The project started by the Skagit Beach Watcher volunteer, Don Coleman, is being carried forward under the leadership of CVP volunteers Dick Kent and Glenda Alm – thanks for taking over the lead! Friends continues to provide funding to covers costs of the hardware and labeling of the equipment.
