05/12/18 Exploratory Dive / Trash Cleanup at Saguaro Lake
with Divers from OdySea Aquarium
Saturday, May 12th, 2018, we spent the morning at Saguaro Lake with an awesome team of divers from Odysea Aquarium led by Ron Barbieri, Dive Safety Officer for Odysea Aquarium. They did an exploratory dive on the north side of the lake by the marina and let us know what kind of trash is collecting on the bottom of the lake.
It was sad to see the amount of trash they located in a short amount of time. They found a metal sign, a large traffic cone, a shoe, a styrofoam cup, sunglasses, a dive sock, a piece of boat decking, several golf balls, glass bottles, plastic bottles, aluminum cans, a ridiculous amount of fishing line, and more. Stay tuned as we continue to work with this amazing team of divers on upcoming projects.
