Sierra Quadra
Quadra’s annual Earth Day Beach Clean-up is on Sunday, April 28th. The headquarters for this tradition is at Rebecca Spit from 10am until 3pm. Garbage bags, if needed, can be picked up at this site during these hours. Lunch and refreshments will be served for participants from 11am until 2pm. Collected beach garbage can be delivered to our headquarters until 3pm or dropped off no later than 2pm at any of the numerous pick-up collection sites on the island:
• End of Petroglyph Road
• North end of Sutil Road at Kay Dubois Trail
• South end of We Wai Kai Road at
Kay Dubois Trail
• Smith Road beach access
• Edgeware Road beach access
• Milford Road beach access
• Open Bay area at Valdez and Marina Roads
• Tsa-Kwa-Luten near the beach cottages
• Paddy’s Lagoon
Please join us and the many Islanders now participating in this traditional event. Thanks to our collective efforts, huge amounts of discarded material that wash up on our beaches are moved away to safe storage. Not only do our efforts beautify Quadra Island, but we are removing plastics — the majority of this detritus — that break down into harmful chemicals that compromise the health of both ourselves and our marine ecosystem. Help beautify our home and make it healthier for us all!
