January 17th, 2016 UC Shore Clean Up
False Creek / Habitat Island

UC Team with family and friends collected 8 garbages bags full of plastic, styrofoam and other single use refuse along the south east shoreline of False Creek.
Throughout the day it was nice to have local residents thanking us while we were in action, but best to know it will help the local wildlife population which includes birds, fish and seals in this new residential neighbourhood that used to be an industrial site.

Brunch well earned!
