The Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup is a perfect chance for ESV to be part of a hands‐on conservation program that makes a direct impact on the environment. (and it wont take all day :) ) Volunteer for two hours and make a real impact!
Make a difference, log a couple of volunteer hours and help preserve our green space! "Many hands make light work."
The Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup has grown into one of the largest direct action environmental events in Canada, and one of the largest shoreline cleanup efforts in the world.
Shoreline litter can leach harmful chemicals into the water, be accidentally eaten by wildlife, injure fellow humans, or entangle aquatic animals such as otters, sea turtles (i know.. devastating isn't it Tommy (http://www.meetup.com/Extremely-Shy-Looking-for-friends/members/83694502/)?) and birds.
free Leave No Trace Awareness mini-session for participants and hotdogs and chips provided afterward.
We will have more details to follow but tentatively:
Shoreline Cleanup 10-12
Want a bit more?? come a bit early for a free information session on Leave no Trace outdoor Ethics: Ways to minimize our impact :)
9:00am register early and join in on a free (to participants) Leave no Trace Awareness mini class
• 9:10am - 9:45am (optional, pre cleanup and free): 30 minute - Leave No Trace Outdoor Ethics 'session' (on one of seven basic principles - not surprisingly, we'll be talking about waste :) )
Can only spare one or two hours? Not interested in the free outdoor class? no problem.!!
show up for late registration, glove up and go when you need to, leave; proud that you stopped by to help out such an important cause!
late registration and handing out supplies for cleanup
Shoreline Cleanup - 'bag it and tag it' ;)
End at park (location tbd)
optional: picnic lunch and maybe a volunteer for ultimate :)
. I will try to bring a grill for hotdogs and some chips. Please bring your own drinks/ water :) or maybe have a potluck or brown bag picnic lunch and possibly play ultimate and enjoy the clean space :)
ESV has one of the largest groups. We also have one of the largest and most prominent areas for shoreline cleanup in the GVRD. Let's show them what we're made of! I would still like to see hundreds of you step up. it starts with you!! sign up, show up and clean up and have some fun!
