PCSGA Fall Beach Clean-Up
When: September 8st (Thursday), 9:00-2:00 pm
Where: Arcadia Boat Launch- 9350 Lynch Rd, Shelton, WA 98584 & National Fish and Oyster - 5028 Meridian Rd NE, Olympia, WA 98516
If you haven’t had the chance to participate in past PCSGA beach clean-ups, don’t worry. We’re excited to get you involved with the festivities! Briefly, here’s how it works. Shellfish growers scavenge the shorelines of South Puget Sound by boat early on Thursday morning for all types of marine debris. Next, they deliver the collected debris and itemized aquaculture gear two either of the two sites. Volunteers assemble around 9:00 to either walk a section of shoreline or help the shellfish growers unload their boats and sort debris into appropriate dumpsters. After the clean-up, enjoy a hearty hot-lunch and beverages compliments of PCSGA, and coffee donated by Olympia Coffee Roasters.
Additionally, second hand aquaculture gear from the clean-up can be claimed! While every clean-up is different, gear often including: ﬂoats, oyster bags, rebar, geoduck tubes, life vest, mussel disks, clam sacks etc. If you are interested in free second-hand gear, please arrive at either beach clean-up site between 12-2pm and have your pick of the litter!
