Portage Head – Summary
After two summers of surveying remote beaches for debris, both in Washington and Alaska, I’d have to say that one of the worst in terms of the amount of debris was a small pocket beach just south of Portage Head. We first came across this beach during our Roadless Coast expedition. It was just packed with debris.
The good news was that as a result of our findings this beach began targeted for repeated beach clean ups. Both Ken and I joined the first team to attempt a beach cleanup here. The whole effort was sponsored and coordinated by the Washington Coast Savers. You can see a short video of the clean up effort here.
