CORPUS CHRISTI - The Packery Channel is a lot cleaner this afternoon! That's because hundreds of volunteers spent their morning cleaning the the boat ramp for the "National Day Of Action." 300 volunteers combed the beach and shoreline picking up trash. Volunteers said they mostly found things like beer cans, fishing line and food wrappings but they did also find a large flat screen TV.
"This is a three part clean up," said Clean City Coordinator Angela Gonzalez. "This is an underwater a water and a land clean up. So we have kayakers in the water actually cleaning up around the jetties and then we have the land portion."
This is the 15th year for the clean up. Each year the committee picks a different a different area of the city to clean.
