Let's Celebrate Earth Day!
I asked Ketchikan homeschool mom, Brooke Ratzat, a charter member of, "Coast Busters," how we could make an impact and help clean up our beautiful coastal community. Brooke recommends that we pick up trash and nails on South Point Higgins Beach - the site of many bonfires and after hours "picnics." By the way, did you know that each burned pallet potentially leaves 64 nails behind?
So, please join me; bring gloves and a garbage sack.I'm going to arrive at 12:30 with a picnic lunch, and I plan to start picking up trash at 1:00. Low tide is at 2:00 (0.9 ft.)
This is a great opportunity for a family service project and to meet up with other families for fun and friendship.
SpaceX will debut an upgraded payload fairing for the Falcon 9 rocket when they return to action with the launch of Spain’s Paz satellite from Vandenberg Air Force Base. The launch, which will also carry the first demonstration satellites for SpaceX’s own satellite internet constellation, is targeting an instantaneous launch opportunity at 06:17 Pacific Time (14:17 UTC).
