Several dozen people turned up to help the Idaho Conservation League and city of Sandpoint to clean up City Beach and the downtown waterfront area along Sand Creek.
Evans Brothers Coffee donated refreshments for the volunteers and ICL provided light snacks as well. The beaches are likely to be muddy or damp, so waterproof boots or shoes are highly recommended.
This event was free to attend and open to all ages.
Community members were invited to clear local shorelines of garbage and debris.
