The BC Marine Trail needs help removing garbage from Chained Islands in the Discovery Islands. We've cleaned up tonnes of debris - now we need to move it out More ...

Action Note: Our garbage is geing towed today, Saturday, Sept. 17. See photo. It's a rainforest where we live and guess what's happening? Chained Islands Cleanup

Note: Any extra funds will be used 100% for future cleanups.

The BC Marine Trails Network Association is a non-profit group working to create a network of marine trails along the British Columbia coast. Part of that job means maintaining the coast and keeping it clean. On Aug.17-21 a group of nine volunteers went to Chained Islands in the Discovery Islands, a location the BCMTNA had visited and found was in need of garbage removal. In the end the amount of garbage found was far more than anticipated. It has been bundled, separated and prepared for recycling and disposal. Now all we need is the boat to take it away, a costly proposition. We anticipate this will cost several thousand dollars, and we need some help to fund it. This was our second major coastal cleanup of the year. Help us keep the coastline of British Columbia clean!
