International Coastal Cleanup with the Surfrider Foundation
Start: Saturday, September 15, 2018•10:00 AM
Our Salish Sea is under assault. Fossil fuel projects and accelerating human activity and development are contributing to pollution, climate change and ocean acidification. On September 15th, please join us for a powerful Salish Sea Day of Action event.
The International Coastal Cleanup is a beach cleanup that happens in over 100 countries on Saturday, September 15th. In 2017, volunteers picked up 18,399,900 pounds of trash from across the world's beaches. Our local chapter of the Surfrider Foundation is partnering with the Ocean Conservancy, Whatcom Marine Resources Committee, and RE Sources for Sustainable Communities for this special event. Join us from 10-12pm on Saturday to help protect our Salish Sea!
Our local community is joining other communities around the bioregion to build broader awareness and advocacy around protection for our Sacred Sea and all living creatures. While the sea itself may separate us physically, we are uniting to face these growing threats together. #WeAretheWater
