22sep1:00 pm3:00 pmKIDS AGAINST PLASTIC/BC RIVERS DAY

Event Details

Plastic pollution doesn’t belong in nature but unfortunately many of our parks and rivers are littered with plastic waste. Some of this will eventually make its way to the ocean where it can be very harmful to marine life. Scientists predict there will be more plastic than fish (by weight) in the sea by 2050. It’s also estimated that 80 percent of ocean litter originates on land.

Bring your kids and come along to Mahon Park to learn more about what we can all do to minimize our impact on the natural world and how we can make a positive difference. The participants will be divided into family groups and do a clean up around Mahon Park and Wagg Creek. Afterwards there will be a talk by Noah Katz from Plastic Bank who will tell us more about practical solutions globally and locally to tackling plastic waste.

We’ll meet by the picnic tables in Mahon Park.

This stewardship event is organized by two students from Queensbury Elementary School in North Vancouver.
