Beach cleanup for Mother’s Day!
May 8, 2022 @ 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm
Love Washington’s beaches? Love your mom? Come and help keep trash out of the ocean and keep our shorelines clean! (Bringing a mom is optional, but we think they’d have a good time).
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. Join us on Mother’s Day, Sunday May 8th from 3-5 p.m. at Larrabee State Park (meet at the amphitheater). Bagels will be provided by The Bagelry. We provide cleanup supplies, just dress for the weather.
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!
