Shoreline Cleanup – September 2022

Last month, Project Watershed and a few of our amazing volunteers once again participated in The Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup, a national conservation initiative that is now one of the largest direct action conservation programs in Canada. Between September 24 and 25, we cleaned 27.5 km of shoreline spanning 10 popular beaches from Little River Ferry to Royston Seaside Trail (Royston Wrecks).

In total, we had 43 participants that picked up 20.5 bags of trash and 0.5 bags of recycling for a totalof 225kg of material removed from beaches. Good job, team!
