Additional Info

Did you know that storm drains are shorelines too? Litter that washes into storm drains can make its way to the ocean, affecting wildlife and their ocean homes. The Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup is hosting this cleanup in partnership with the City of Vancouver’s Adopt a Catch Basin program and UN-Canada’s Green Corps. We will be focusing on cleaning at and around the surrounding catch basins. Join us for this special event and make a difference in your community. There are fun prizes to be won too!
