Shoreline Cleanup


Update: Thank you to everybody who braved the rain and came out to help make this year’s shoreline cleanup a success! Over half a dozen bags of garbage were removed from this beautiful downtown beach park, including a bra, a hockey bag, and a helmet. We look forward to responsibly stewarding our environment and communities in other ways in the near future. Special shoutout to Jay Minter from Helijet for joining us! We extend an invitation for all globally minded businesses and individuals to continue supporting our future events.

The Capilano University Student Chapter of Pacific Asia Travel Association (PATA) is pleased to host a shoreline cleanup at Crab Park in downtown Vancouver.

This comes as a delightful result of last year’s efforts, where over half a dozen bags of garbage was removed from its beach and grassy areas. Local businesses commended the participants for volunteering their time at the event to foster responsible environmental stewardship while positively strengthening the community spirit.

We ask that all participants RSVP so that the correct quantity of gloves and other supplies will be available. A brief safety orientation will take place before the cleanup on the grass by the lamp posts (as seen in the event’s cover photo).

This event is made possible through the collaboration of PATA Cap U Student Chapter, Capilano University Tourism Management, Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup, and Keep Vancouver Spectacular.
