I previously blogged that I was trying to volunteer for my city’s weekly environmental cleanup dives: https://scubadivingzero.wordpress.com/2018/06/17/trying-to-volunteer/
Sadly, one month later, I am now convinced that my city does not actually do cleanups at all, whether in the ocean or on land.
I requested — and received — assistance from someone inside the government who personally knows the person who purportedly leads the cleanup dives. With 3 total contacts, plus 2 visits to the corresponding office, there does not seem to have been any dives in over a month, nor are any dives scheduled, not does anyone know when future dives might be scheduled.
In other words, they just ain’t happening. And it’s a damn shame.
