We held our monthly cleanup of the Garapan Tourist District on Saturday morning. We've been holding this cleanup every month since October 2006. That's 24 consecutive months.
The cleanup is headed by Friends of the Mariana Islands. They are one of the many organizations in the Marianas supporting the proposed Mariana Trench Marine National Monument.
Earlier in the week I led a cleanup of the beach fronting Aquarius Hotel. A group of students from Nippon University's school of International Relations helped out and the hotel manager, Will Hunter, donated donuts and some water. Thanks, Will!
