Surfrider Foundation Vancouver Island: Sombrio Beach Cleanup from Surfrider Vancouver Island on Vimeo.

Monthly beach cleanups are at the core of the Combing the Coast campaign. Through a strong and consistent beach cleanup and data collection effort, our chapter hopes to develop a robust data-set that helps inform people about the types of marine debris and garbage found on local Vancouver Island beaches, while simultaneously cleaning them up. With this data, our chapter can approach local businesses, industry and decision-makers and find ways to reduce the use and consumption of products that find their way to our coastline.

Monthly beach cleanups happen on the second sunday of every month, from 11am – 1pm. See side-table for schedule.
