Join us for our FIRST EVER combined shoreline and underwater cleanup!!! Surfrider will be handling the shoreline portion of the cleanup with the support of Surfrider Vancouver Island, the UVic SCUBA Club will be diving in the water to clean up debris, and the UVic SUP Club and UVic Kayak Club will be providing the divers with surface support, ferrying trash from the divers to the shore on their paddle boards and kayaks (how cool is that)!
The UVic Scuba Club will be providing divers for the event, but we also encourage members of the local diving community to join us as well!
Surfrider UVic encourages members and non-members, students and non-students, to attend the shoreline cleanup portion of the event.
We will have a table set up near the parking lot in Cadboro-Gyro Park where we will meet just before 11am (look for the blue Surfrider logo). Divers should be there a bit earlier to set up their gear and have a site debriefing.
Whole Foods is donating some tasty snacks for hungry beach cleaners.
**We are hoping to get some mesh dive bags but if you have your own please bring them! We provide bucket and/or reusable bags and gloves but feel free to bring your own if you can in case we run out.
