Look­ing for vol­un­teers

Cleanup planned for Mur­ray Har­bour

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - THE PROVINCE -

The Na­ture Con­ser­vancy of Canada is look­ing for vol­un­teers to as­sist with a ma­jor cleanup at Mur­ray Har­bour.

The event is sched­uled for 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Satur­day, July 25.

There is an ar­chi­pel­ago of five is­lands in Mur­ray Har­bour (Cherry, Thomas, Gor­don, Her­ring and Reynolds).

The goal is to re­move marine de­bris and garbage that washes up on the shores and which pose a threat to wildlife species from in­ges­tion and en­tan­gle­ment.

Par­tic­i­pants must have their own kayaks (or rented), all safety gear, be ex­pe­ri­enced and able to pad­dle two to 10 kilo­me­tres, depend­ing which is­land they help clean up.

Vol­un­teers will be pro­vided with work gloves, wa­ter and snacks but should pack a lunch, wa­ter bot­tle and shoes for walk­ing on the is­land.

The event will pro­ceed in sun­shine or light driz­zle, but will be post­poned to the fol­low­ing day if weather brings rain or high wind.
