BC Rivers Day Shoreline Clean-up with Comox Valley Nature

We’re teaming up with  Comox Valley Nature to complete a Shoreline Clean up of the Courtenay Estuary around the Air Park to celebrate BC Rivers Day
Location: Please meet at 9:50 am at the Courtenay Air Park – Kayak rental/cafe parking lot (travelling south on Cliffe Ave, a left hand turn onto 20th st.). The event starts at 10, but it would be good to have a few minutes to complete the sign in sheet and say hellos before we get started! We will be directed by the organizers, but come prepared with boots/good outdoor gear etc. You may also want to bring work gloves. I’ll have a few pairs of latex gloves available, but best if folks can bring something from home so we aren’t creating more waste.
This is a stewardship activity, where kids and families have an opportunity to “give back” to nature, learn a bit about human impacts on nature (plastics and garbage) and participate in a coordinated effort to help reduce those impacts – See Great Canadian Shoreline Clean Up: https://www.shorelinecleanup.ca

Explorer Day Etiquette:

  • Be prepared to HAVE FUN!
  • Pre-registration with your Club Leader is required for most Explorer Days (Friends are welcome if space permits).
  • Please arrive 5-10 minutes before the scheduled start time to ensure enough time for passport stamping and organization. Starting times are firm, and Leaders cannot wait for late-comers!
  • Please stay with the Leader and let them know if you are leaving early.
  • Children must always be accompanied by an adult guardian, who is responsible for their behaviour. Children consistently disrupting the experience of others may be asked to leave.
  • Bring appropriate weather gear, sunscreen, snacks, water, and other useful tools like binoculars, sketch books, cameras, and magnifying glasses.
