Kus-kus-sum/Hollyhock Flats Shoreline Cleanup 2020

Join us on September 26th as we participate in the Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup. The cleanup will occur on the Kus-kus-sum property and the adjacent Hollyhock flats area. We will start at 10am and go til about noon.

Last year we collected around 300 kgs of garbage in this location and it looks like we will have our work cut out for us this year too!

Please dress for the weather, wear sturdy shoes, bring water and gloves. We will have hand sanitizer and masks available but we encourage you to bring your own. Volunteers will work in small groups. There is no washroom onsite.

We will meet on the Kus-kus-sum site which is located along Comox Road next to the 17th Street Bridge. The gate at the south end of the property, after the old building, will be open. Bikes and cars can be parked on the site during the cleanup.

You can sign up using our sign up form or by logging into the official Shoreline Cleanup site.
