DIY Sifting Screens #NPLD2021

For National Public Lands Day this year we decided on a granular approach to the beverage glass surrounding beloved Giant Rock. At a solstice cleanup in 2020, we noticed a toddler playing in the unsafe sand!

Made possible by a generous donation from Builders Supply, we built 5 sand sifting screens suitable for desert or beach cleanups.

You’ll need the tools pictured and these materials:

  • 1/4″ Hardware Cloth
  • 1/2″ PVC Pipe and Elbows
  • Pool Noodles – we found Day of the Dead black ones at Dollar Tree!
  • 8″ Zip Ties – for the screen to pipe
  • 11″ Zip Ties – for the noodles wrapped
  • Black Duct Tape
  • Optional: PVC Glue
