Beach cleanup on the agenda for Vancouver

May 10, 2018 by  

Vancouver’s English Bay Beach will be the site of a hands on environmental action project that will be held in celebration of World Oceans Day, and the public has been asked to show it their support.

The Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup and Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society have partnered to organize a cleanup of the beach, and the volunteers who sign up to take part will be picking up litter and other debris. The event is scheduled to take two hours, and the group will meet at the change rooms, which can be found just east of the Cactus Club.

The equipment needed to complete the task, including pickers, gloves and buckets will be provided, and all that the volunteers will need to bring is a hat, as well as sunscreen and a reusable water bottle. They are reminded to wear clothing that is appropriate for the work and to dress for the weather.

Anyone who is interested in taking part can do so for free, but they are asked to register ahead of time so that the organizers will know how many to expect. A printer can use graphic design techniques to create logos and other branding that can be used to help promote an event like this to the public, and ensure it is well attended.

This opportunity to do a good turn for the shoreline has been arranged for June 8, starting at 3:30 pm. Its online listing includes more information and contact details for the project’s planners.
