Moosehead event restores wetlands

More than 400 environmental enthusiasts tugged and pulled as they struggled to remove nearly 20 tons of timber, bricks, and discarded metal, tires and other debris from a wetland area during the recent Moosehead Trail Mixer and cleanup at Candlestick Point State Park near San Francisco, sponsored by Canada's Moosehead beer.

"Workers began showing up around 9:30 a.m. and got right down to business, paying little attention to the environmental displays, free music and refreshments," said Candlestick Point park ranger Dan Dungy. "The people worked very hard and cleaned up a shoreline area about the size of a football field in five hours."

"Materials hauled away from the wetlands area included 3,260 pounds of wood, 17,220 pounds of tires, 14,280 pounds of scrap metal and 3,888 pounds of miscellaneous trash, most of which was recycled," commented Kely Runyon, regional recycling manager, San Francisco Sanitary Fill Co.

For the cleanup, Sanitary Fill and Sunset Scavenger Co., divisions of Norcal Solid Waste Systems, Inc., provided a portable recycling center, garbage truck and six debris boxes.

The cleanup efforts were all part of Moosehead Canadian Lager's "Share the Wilderness" fund-raising campaign in support of the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation. Cleanup and environmental festivities at Candlestick Point were one of four such community service activities in the country. The others were based in Boston, New York and Philadelphia.
