The Eastshore Freshwater Habitat Society and Friends of Kootenay Lake are teaming up to organize a community shoreline clean-up event at Crawford Bay Beach on the Eastshore of Kootenay Lake. Take action against shoreline garbage by joining us on October 3rd for the Crawford Bay Shoreline Clean-Up event. This will be a great opportunity for community members to have fun, help the lake, and socialize. The plan is to meet at Crawford Bay Beach at 1:00pm and start cleaning up garbage along the shoreline. After the clean-up there will be campfire with free hotdogs and refreshments. Bring your boots and work gloves!
When: Saturday October 3rd 1:00pm-4:00pm
Where: Rendezvous at Crawford Bay Beach
This event is part of the Great Canadian Shoreline Clean-Up, a nation-wide initiative to clean-up Canada’s shorelines. In 2014, nearly 140,000 kg of litter was removed from 2,500 km of shorelines from across Canada. For our local shorelines, waterways and oceans around the world, shoreline litter is a global environmental problem that can have long-term impacts on ecosystems, wildlife and people. Removing it helps make our aquatic ecosystems cleaner, healthier and safer for all living things.
