The Gulliver's Cove Trails Association, led by Wanda Van Tassell, is organizing a beach clean up at Gulliver’s Cove for June 4.
A class of Options and Opportunities students from DRHS are coming to help, plus and Wanda and I are hoping a good number of local people can also make it for some of the day.
“It’s going to be a big job,” says Van Tassell. “It must be five years since we’ve done a clean up here and this beach, the way it is structured, we’re one of those beaches that gets a lot of debris washing in.”
Wanda has seen a day of cleaning makes a big difference in the past.
“When it’s cleaned up, it’s pretty nice,” she says. “People come from all over to enjoy the shore here. They come looking for agates, for walks on the trails, they have picnics and lobster boils.”
The Gulliver’s Cove clean up is from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on June 4 - but as far as that goes, anytime you want to go the beach and start gathering it up, your help would be welcome.
Digby Salvage and Disposal is donating a dumpster and the Municipality of the District of Digby has waived the tipped fees. Clean Foundation will be providing gloves and garbage bags and the Municipality is hosting a BBQ to thank and fuel the volunteers.
