Beach Cleanup Day

As part of their Earth Day activities, the Hornby Island School held a beach cleanup at Big Tribune Bay. Natural History Centre volunteers joined the group and helped lead learners in the cleanup. Sadly, there were many bags of garbage collected: large chunks of styrofoam, glass/plastic bottles, and many other items that can harm to our beaches and wildlife.

This was the second beach cleanup with the school kids. It is great to see this event becoming a yearly tradition. Below are some photographs of the groups in action. As you can see, the kids accomplished a lot in a short time!

Thank you to Barb Biagi for photographing the event.
