Saturday, over 50 of those volunteers scoured Tigertail Beach, from the tideline in the lagoon, where Art Dobberstein patrolled the mangroves standing up and floating on his paddleboard, to the scrub around the parking lots, where hardcore cleanup veterans like Stan Hutchins collected a pickup truck bedful of debris. And the logs records of just what was found and removed from the beach, as opposed to the baulks of timber which comprise one large component of the junk played a key role in their activities.
