A dedicated group from Delta Community Living Society (DCLS) took part in the Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup on Friday, Sept. 30.

“Our goal is to give back to the community we live and work in, and to clean up the shoreline debris that poses a risk to wildlife and people that are here walking on the beach,” notes DCLS Surrey Connections community support worker Vicki Whittaker.

Thirteen program members and support staff were participating in the cleanup for the fourth year, and enjoyed its first time cleaning a site at the south end of Centennial Beach.

Several bags of debris were pulled from the beach, which is a popular recreation area for people and migrating birds.

“The plastic rings (from cans) are very bad. They get caught on birds’ necks” commented program member Richard Hooks, as he cleaned small pieces of plastic from the shore.
