Great Fundy Coastal Cleanup

ACAP Saint John is partnering with the Nature Trust of New Brunswick and many other great organizations across the province for their annual Great Fundy Coastal Cleanup.

This year we will be hosting cleanups along two different shorelines: Red Head Beach and McLarens Beach.

If you plan on joining us on the west side of Saint John, you can meet us in the parking lot of McLarens Beach at the end of McLarens Beach Road (off of Sand Cove Road). If you'd like to join us at our east side location, you can meet us in the driveway just after 1452 Red Head Road.

Feel free to drop by any time between 6pm - 8pm to help pick up marine debris. ACAP Saint John staff will be onsite to provide garbage bags and gloves. This event is open to all ages. It is recommended that volunteers wear closed-toed shoes as these areas can be rocky/muddy.  

If you have any questions regarding this volunteer opportunity, feel free to contact as by email at office@acapsj.org or by phone number at (506)-652-2227.
