Enjoying the Ocean

Older students with wetsuits and stand-up paddle-boards will paddle with certified instructors and experience the ocean — kelp, seals, jellyfish and all. Younger students with gumboots will explore the shoreline.

Learning the Issues

Via classroom activities and an interactive, on-the-beach workshop, participants will learn about plastic pollution, ocean life and human health.

Inspiring Change

Participants are challenged to rethink our use of plastics and empowered to make changes in their own lives—from avoiding throwaway plastics to organizing beach clean-ups and zero-waste initiatives

Recent samples taken off the B.C. coast contained up to 25,000 plastic particles in just one cubic metre of seawater.
