March monthly cleanup at Locust Beach
March 22 @ 12:00 pm – 2:00 pm
Our March cleanup theme is World Water Day, celebrated every year an annual United Nations Observance on March 22 started in 1993 to celebrate water and raise awareness of the 2 billion people currently living without access to safe water.
To combat plastic pollution in the Salish Sea, RE Sources and Surfrider Foundation hosts 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 March 22nd from 12-2pm at Locust Beach (3199 Locust Ave, Bellingham). Bagels will be provided be 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. This year’s World Water Day is focused on the importance of groundwater. Learn more here.
RSVP not required, but helps us get an idea of how many people to expect. Thank you for keeping waterways clean!
