Eerie Green Algae Hosts Marvels: Floating Trash
By Tom Selbach
Despite unprecedented drought, nearly 50 volunteers came out to Coyote Creek to find some pools of water in the creek bed. Some of it was brackish, other pools were downright eerie.
Plenty of trash was floating in the stagnant water here. The eerie green algae seen below had on it floating many items of trash, which wound up in the pile.
Other photos show the efforts to remove many items of furniture, including a rarity–a sofa and its matching ottoman.
All were dragged up trails through poison oak and removed, and they wound up thoroughly crushed in the city garbage truck.
