Glass Beach

Glass Beach in MacKerricher State Park near Fort Bragg, California that is abundant in sea glass created from years of dumping garbage (and bottles) into an area of coastline near the northern part of the town.

At that time the land was owned by the Union Lumber Company, and locals referred to it as “The Dumps”.

In 1967 the North Coast Water Quality Board closed the area completely and initiated a series of cleanups.

Over the next several decades the pounding waves cleansed the beach, wearing down the discarded glass into the small, smooth, colored trinkets that cover the beach today.
