Vargas Island Marine Debris Clean Up

May 25 @ 8:00 am May 29 @ 5:00 pm

In conjunction with the Maaqutusiis Hahoulthee Society, Ahousaht Secondary School & Surfriders Pacific Rim Chapter.

This 5-day trip will be a circumnavigation of Vargas Island with stops at most of the major recreation beaches. At each stop, we will work as a team to collect marine debris accumulation, and then package it for later removal.

On day two and three we will be stopped at Ahous bay. Here, we will meet with the Ahousaht Guardians and the Ahousaht secondary school kids to do a joint beach clean of this sprawling west-facing beach, learn about stewardship in the Ahousaht Hahoulthee and interact with the community while sharing our passion for the water.

Participation requires expertise in navigating class 3 waters. Hazards include: swell, boomers, surf landings

Must be prepared with your own kayak, weather-appropriate clothing, safety equipment, food, water and a positive attitude ready to make a difference!
