The Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup and the award-winning Aquavan will make a splash in the Sault on Sunday, July 30, and Clean North will be there to help! The cleanup will take place from 10 am to noon at North St. Mary’s Island, Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario. Please meet in the parking lot of the Parks Canada visitors centre, where the AquaVan will be located.
So what’s the clean up all about? Every year, tens of thousands of Canadians take action against shoreline litter by participating in shoreline cleanup events. This initiative is led by the Vancouver Aquarium and WWF-Canada. Since 2003, more than 400,000 participants from coast to coast have removed nearly one million kilos of garbage from Canada’s shorelines.
And what about the AquaVan? This award-winning mobile exhibit from the Vancouver Aquarium Marine Science Centre’s will offer the opportunity to touch a sea star, examine a hermit crab, and discover the connections among our aquatic life, the environment, and ourselves.
Come on out on Sunday to help protect our local aquatic ecosystem and learn more about our ocean life! And bring the kids! Please share the link to this post on social media and via email.
