Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup – Aug 24, 2019

Drop by the hatchery on Saturday, August 24, 2019 for our annual Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup.  Bring your family and friends – all ages welcome.

In 2018, more than 60 volunteers helped clear over 40kg’s of garbage from along our shoreline at our Noons Creek hatchery for the Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup.  Let’s hopefully collect even less this year!  Saturday, August 24!

We will be cleaning along Noons Creek, the Shoreline Trail of the Port Moody Arm of Burrard Inlet from Orchard Park to Rocky Point Park.

The Port Moody Ecological Society acknowledges and honours that our community lies on unceded indigenous land belonging to the Coast Salish Peoples, xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish),Stó:lō and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations.

Please register now!

Notes:

  • Please register online at shorelinecleanup.ca
  • Bring three shopping bags – one for garbage, one for recycling and one for cigarette butts
  • Gloves and boots (we have a limited supply)
  • Wear clothes that can get dirty and possibly wet
  • Stay out of the mud
  • Separate cigarette butts
  • Do not pick up dead animals – record the details of the type and location only
  • Stay well away from the railway tracks
  • If a item is in the mud, please leave it as it may now be home to marine animals (but record the type and location)

We will be collecting cigarette butts separately and sending them to Terracycle Canada for recycling.
