How to Poop on the Beach

Mattole area beaches including the Lost Coast have seen increased visitation in the summer and fall of 2020. It is a blessing to have these wild, wide open spaces to explore during the COVID pandemic and when other areas are severely impacted by wildfires, and local beaches are a great place to recreate safely. However, improper disposal of human waste is unsightly, unsanitary, and causes environmental damage to these precious areas. Please do your part to dispose of human waste properly, and help keep the beaches and dunes pristine
