Event description

Description


Love Vancouver? Love our oceans? Love meeting cool people?

Then bring your friends and family and come on out to help clean the shoreline around Granville Island and take part in a pot-luck zero-waste picnic.

A Great Canadian Shoreline Clean Up collaboration by Sea Smart, Nada and eXXpedition with the support of many others including Surfrider Foundation who are providing the clean up gear.

This event is in celebration of eXXpedition North Pacific 2018 - a pioneering all-female sailing voyage and scientific research mission to raise awareness of, and solutions for the devastating environmental and health impacts of single use plastic and toxics in the world's oceans. The crew will be in Vancouver having sailed across the North Pacific Gyre from Hawaii and preparing to leave later in the day for Leg 2 of their mission down to Seattle.

11am - Meet at 11:00am at the Granville Island Duck Pond (behind Pedro's Organic Coffee). Look out for the Sea Smart tent so you can sign in on the day!

12pm - Clean up ends

12.30pm - 2pm Potluck picnic at Creekside Park across from the Fishermen's Wharf (just past the False Creek Harbour Authority near Go Fish).

FOR THE CLEAN UP
Bring closed toe shoes, water, hat and sunscreen. Ideally, bring reusable gloves so we can minimize waste, but we will also have disposable gloves, buckets and garbage pickers.

PICNIC GET TOGETHER
Bring something yummy to share, and your own cup, cutlery, and containers. For those of you who are interested, you can check out eXXpedition's amazing research vessel docked nearby and meet the crew taking part in the clean up.

Co-hosted by three ocean loving organizations: Sea Smart, Nada, and eXXpedition, we hope to bring together passionate ocean lovers for a fun day of cleaning up our shorelines and getting to know each other over some yummy food.
