Miramar Lake was one of 113 cleanup sites for I Love A Clean San Diego’s (ILACSD) 15th Annual Creek to Bay Cleanup held on Earth Day in April. Approximately 6,200 registered volunteers helped improve the health and beauty of San Diego’s natural environment during the three-hour event, removing more than 150,000 pounds of trash and debris from locations throughout the county. Some notable odd items found in the cleanup included a $90 check, an ATM machine shell, and a raw chicken package. Volunteers also beautified and restored the local environment through painting, planting, and weeding projects.
