Sea Scout Ship #226 “Constellation” teamed up with the Everett Navy Sea Cadet Corps for their annual Jetty Island Beach clean-up in Everett. Together the Sea Scouts and the Navy Cadets spent Saturday morning June 25th picking up plastic and trash along the beach at Jetty Island. The Sea Scouts picked this particular day for their annual Jetty Island beach cleanup because it’s the weekend before passenger service starts back up to the island, “We wanted the public to enjoy a clean island.”
