Blake Island Cleanup

September 25, 2016 @ 8:30 am - 3:30 pm

We have only one spot left for this cleanup! Please call our office if you are interested: 206-297-7002.

The International Coastal Cleanup is the largest global volunteer project in service to our rivers, lakes and oceans. Each fall, approximately 800,000 people worldwide clean up their local waterways and document every single piece of trash collected. The results are sent to the Ocean Conservancy and published into an annual report to give us an idea of exactly what is floating around in our oceans (hint: the most prevalent item is small, plastic, and brown and white in color).

Last year, over 18 million pounds of trash were collected. Items ranged from a wedding dress to an abandoned toilet to plastic food wrappers and bags. What will be found this year?

Soundkeeper (in conjunction with Argosy Cruises and WA State Parks) will be hosting a cleanup on Blake Island. Transportation to and from the island will be provided. This is an all day trip! Be sure to bring a lunch. Naturalists from the Seattle Aquarium will also be in attendance to point out intertidal critters and talk about Puget Sound ecology.

Date: Sunday, September 25th

Time: 8:30am-3:30pm
