On Saturday May 12, members of the Mill Valley Little League Board of Directors volunteered to clean-up an area of Bothin Marsh near the Mill Valley Middle School and the City Corporation Yard at the end of Sycamore Ave. In this area there are two Little League batting cages and over time many baseballs have been lost to the creek as well as other large pieces of debris. The area is a difficult area to keep clean with the rise and fall of the tide.
“Clean Mill Valley acknowledges Mill Valley Little League for its work in keeping balls and trash out of our waterways that lead to Richardson Bay and eventually into the Pacific Ocean,” said Joan Murray of Clean Mill Valley. “In addition to teaching the values of sportsmanship through baseball and the skills to play the game, they are teaching the importance of environmental stewardship. Thanks to Little League parents for leading the way to a cleaner world.”
Clean Mill Valley is a group of community activists from a variety of local organizations. Founded in 2012, the group is represented by several Mill Valley community groups as well as representatives from several other Marin groups and towns.
“Community service is such an integral part of our community,” said Ronnie Moore, Volunteer Coordinator, “it’s what makes Mill Valley such a special place to live. Thank you Mill Valley Little League for supporting the health of our community.”
