Employees in the Lodi office volunteered recently for International Coastal Cleanup day. They targeted a specific area around Lodi Lake, picking up trash. In 2014 astounding 561,895 volunteers walked through 13,360 miles of lakes and coasts in various countries to pick up 16,186,759 pounds of trash. This year, there was again a great response! The annual coastal cleanup day is sponsored by Ocean Conservancy, a 40-year-old organization that works to educate and empower citizens to take action on behalf of the ocean.
