Earth Day is a day to celebrate the wonders of our planet Earth and all the wild and wonderful life it supports. It is also a day to recognize how human activities are affecting the living things we share the planet with, and a day of worldwide action. An important action that we can take is to protect marine life and ecosystems by removing the litter and debris found along the roads, pathways, and shorelines of Pender.
Please join us for the 34th Annual Earth Day Clean up. We will have coffee, treats, prizes, music, and displays.
However, you need not wait until Clean-up Day to start cleaning the beach, park, pathway, or roadside of your choice. Anytime between now and April 23, you can grab some gloves and bags and head out to clean, then bring your collected debris and litter down to the drop off site at the Medicine Beach Centre on Clean-up day. Volunteers will be there to help you load your garbage into the bins. If you need bags, you can pick them up at the Conservancy Nature Centre at Hope Bay, starting April 1st. If you need help with any large or difficult to reach items, please let us know, and we will try and arrange volunteers to come out to assist you.
If you know what beach or road you plan to clean, it would be helpful if you let us know ahead of time. To do so, or if you have any questions, or if you are able to help others get their collected debris to the drop off site, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
