About 150 people help out with shoreline clean-up at Station Beach, Kincardine

Members of the Kincardine and area community came out in force to support the Lake Huron Centre for Coastal Conservation shoreline clean-up, Monday evening, at Station Beach, Kincardine.

Nearly 150 participants, sporting gloves, clipboards and garbage bags, fanned out over the beach and ended up collecting 150 pounds of trash. Items collected and recorded on the tally cards included more than 500 cigarette butts, 40 balloons and hundreds of plastic items, such as water bottles, toys and food wrappers.

After their hard work, volunteers were treated to hot dogs supplied by Sobeys and prepared and served by the Kincardine and District Lions Club. Several participants took advantage of the opportunity to try out paddleboards supplied by West Shore Clothing and Surf Shoppe.

Many people also purchased $5 raffle tickets for the stand-up paddleboard supplied by Bruce Power, with proceeds dedicated to supporting Lake Huron conservation programs. Tickets may still be obtained at West Shore in downtown Kincardine or at the coastal centre’s office on The Square in Goderich. The draw will be made in September.

Event partners, the Lake Huron Coastal Centre and Huron Fringe Field Naturalists, were overwhelmed by the public’s response and thank everyone who participated, and those who sponsored the event.
