On Wednesday October 13th 2010, Team Marine went to the KLOS studios to be interviewed by Cynthia Fox. The interview was pre-recorded and will be aired on Sunday October 17th on 95.5 KLOS between 6:30-7 AM. In addition to their radio spot, Kou, Jessica, and Michelle got a tour of the studio and met the executives of the radio station. The memorable occasion allowed the team members to learn the basics of how radio works. A giant thank you to Cynthia Fox and the KLOS team for inviting Team Marine be on the station.

>First Flush

>

Team Marine was struck with great distress as news of the first flush came to our attention. For the first time since last winter, significant rains hit the Santa Monica area. The water (and trash) collected by the city’s storm drains broke the sand barrier at the Pico-Kenter storm drain and flowed into the ocean on October 5th-6th, 2010. Team Marine had an emergency meeting, and immediately walked to the storm drain site to document and clean the beach. We picked up hundreds of pounds of trash in a short amount of time, but unfortunately thousands of pounds of trash still flowed into our Santa Monica Bay.
