Beach cleanup for Valentine’s Day: Show the ocean some love!

February 14 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Pick up beach cleanup supplies, refreshments, and join us at the mouth of Whatcom Creek to prevent trash from getting into Bellingham Bay!

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!
