A Facebook Post from the Clear Waterways Organization. “Special thanks to our team at the Arroyo Hondo Preserve on the Gaviota Coast. The Venturelli Group’s, “Give Back Santa Barbara,” dedicated their volunteer time to help remove this pollution. We do it not only for pride in the place we live in, but also to create awareness of the world-wide issue of micro-plastic in our waterways. My son Riley was there to give us his idealistic insight on how everything should be reusable, compostable and recyclable. Thank you Gabe Venturelli, John Pierpont, and Riley Kirshtner. We prevented this pollution from being swept into the ocean and the Arroyo Hondo Creek. We then all watched a grey whale lunge-feed at sea. We all felt so proud!”
