Coastal cleanup crew seeks donated backpacks

Coast Savers, the group that organizes the Olympic Coast Cleanup each spring, is expanding its cleanup events so that more specific areas can be cleared of debris throughout the year. As a result, it is seeking donated backpacks for volunteer crew members.

According to Liam Antrim of the Olympic Coast National Marine Sanctuary, large volume, single compartment packs with decent shoulder and waist straps for hauling bags of debris for a few miles are needed. Frame packs with good straps and good capacity to tie on bags would also be beneficial.

If you have a pack to donate or need more details, contact Antrim, 360-457-6622 ext. 16, liam.antrim@noaa.gov
