Plastic shotshell wads that migrated from the Warnimont Park shooting range and washed up on Grant Park beaches were picked up by volunteers during the Friends of Grant Park 2015 Spring beach cleanup. Nineteen pounds amounting to approximately 3,268 pieces were collected. The only time the range operators were ticketed was in 1989.
