Eight teenagers from around the country backpack along the wild Olympic coast for two weeks. Their mission: to collect as much marine debris as they can pack out on their backs. Their story is one of partnership, stewardship and inspiring volunteerism. "This trip has influence how I'm going to live the rest of my life. I already miss the beach."
