Unusual Glass Beach
Glass Beach is a beach in MacKerricher State Park near Fort Bragg, California that is abundant in sea glass created from years of dumping garbage into an area of coastline near the northern part of the town.
In the early 20th century, Fort Bragg residents threw their household
garbage over the cliffs above what is now Glass Beach. They discarded glass, appliances, and even cars. The land was owned at that time by the Union Lumber Company, and locals referred to it as "The Dumps." Sometimes fires were lit to reduce the size of the trash pile. In 1967, the North Coast Water Quality Board and city leaders closed the area. Various cleanup programs were undertaken through the years to correct the damage. 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. In 2002, the California State Park system purchased the 38-acre (150,000 m2) Glass Beach property, and after cleanup it was incorporated into MacKerricher State Park.
The beach is now frequently visited by tourists. Though not
officially permitted, many still scour the beach for interesting curios
to take home as souvenirs. The glass is no longer allowed to be taken
from the beach. When the beach was cleaned up people were quickly
attracted to the beautiful glass so they took it. Before the beach could
be destroyed the California Parks And Recreation Dept. took over the
beach. The path from the road down to the beach is regarded as treacherous,
because unprepared visitors not wearing shoes with sufficient traction
occasionally injure themselves
