Beach Clean-up at Percival River, Alaska

 Registration is closed for this event
Join Island Nature Trust staff and volunteers for a shoreline clean-up at our Percival River natural area in Alaska.

Event registration is mandatory due to COVID-19 restrictions. However, participation is not obligatory.

PLASTIC NOT FANTASTIC

Of all trash, plastic rubbish has the greatest potential to harm the environment, wildlife and humans. It can be found floating at the surface, suspended in the water column, or on the bottom of almost all water bodies. It is transported by rivers to the ocean, where it moves with the currents, and is often eaten by birds and fish, concentrating toxic chemicals in their tissues, and filling their stomachs, causing them to starve. Plastic aquatic debris is much more than a mere aesthetic problem.

Please help us to remove this harmful plastic as well as other items of rubbish from our coastline. There are two properties we wish to target in September. The first clean-up on Thursday 10th is the recently acquired Percival River property in Alaska. It is one of the least developed watersheds in PEI and the largest unbroken ribbon of saltmarsh in PEI - host to a rich and diverse habitat for vulnerable wildlife.

We will supply gloves and bags. Participants should bring a hat, and water. Feel free to bring a lunch and enjoy a picnic on the beautiful clean beach afterwards!
Note: Gloves and bags will be provided.
