Exploration Of a Place With a Surprise Discovery 2012-2013 Miss Savannah State University, Tiffany Hallback held a community service beach cleanup at Tybee Island Beach.

The most tallies we got were cigarette butts and candy wrappers. In just our bag we found over 200 cigarette butts and wasn’t able to collect them all that we saw.
