Beach cleanup @ Cherry Point
July 5 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Fourth of July celebrations often leave a lot of trash on beaches — join us for a cleanup on Wednesday, July 5th from 10am to 12pm near the Cherry Point Aquatic Reserve (4601 Gulf Rd, Ferndale).
Bagels will be provided by The Bagelry, and Kombucha Town will provide beverages! We provide cleanup supplies, on a first-come first-served basis. Dress for the weather. Family-friendly, but kids must be accompanied by an adult.
To combat plastic pollution in the Salish Sea, we host beach cleanups — as well as cleanups along rivers and lakes — throughout Whatcom and Skagit counties, providing cleanup equipment and a place to connect with like-minded community members.
Plastic pollution is a concern for water quality and wildlife everywhere, and has even been discovered in drinking water and table salt worldwide. Recent research found that Pacific Ocean juvenile fish have been consuming microplastic particles in their first days of life, with not-yet understood health consequences.
RSVP not required, but helps us get an idea of how many people to expect. Thank you for keeping waterways clean!
