A crew of First Tsartlip Beavers took to the shores, fulfilling their promise to “love God and help take care of the world.”
The motto brought the group of five- to eight-year-olds to Patricia Bay on May 9 to participate in the Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup. They collected everything they could spot that didn’t belong on the beach.
Many of the Beavers took the chance to clamber up the rock wall behind the beach to retrieve long forgotten pop bottles and plastic bags. Some other items found were rope and netting, foam from floats and lots of different types of plastic.
