Fort Bragg in Mendocino County, California — The American West (Pacific Coastal)
Our Past Through Our Trash
Unfortunately, this historic treasure is disappearing as both locals and visitors cart off interesting objects and take handfuls of glass "jewels." The amount of glass on our beach today is a fraction of what it was in the early 1980s.
Enjoy our town's history, but please don't take our sea glass away. Ask others to leave our treasure on the beach.
