Event description

Description

Love your beach and keep it safe! We're having a cleanup at Habitat Island, and will be joined by several amazing organizations. Our educational party will consist of Fraser Riverkeeper, City of Vancouver, Sea Smart, SPEC, and 4Oceans, who will be discussing environmental topics and climate change. Thank you City of Vancouver for providing our volunteers with food and drinks for this event!

Did you know that the majority of waste found on Vancouver beaches is left behind by local beach goers? Cigarette butts, needles, styrofoam take out containers and Starbucks cups are constantly being left behind creating safety hazards and destroying our environment.

Your beach needs your help! Our goal is to clean every major Vancouver beach in 2017. You can join the Surfrider Vancouver team by signing up for this cleanup. Bonus points if you invite a friend to come!

We will be cleaning the island and along the shoreline from Science World to Cambie St Bridge. Come dressed for the weather and join us as we clean the shoreline, island, park and seawall.

After cleanup social is at 1pm, location TBA.

Beach cleanups are a fun and easy way to get involved and keep your beaches and oceans clean. Help keep our beach cleanups totally zero waste -- don’t forget to bring your work gloves and a reusable mug to our events!

Help us protect where you play!

Safety First: For safety reasons please bring gloves and closed toed shoes. Always use a stick or trash picker to sift through the sand to avoid sharp objects. If you come across any sharp or hazardous object, mark it and tell us, our team can handle the safe removal.

Social Event: TBA
