Pendleton Island Cleanup

Join us as a part of the Great Fundy Coastal Cleanup to tidy up the tides!

Saturday, August 20  

9 a.m.–3 p.m.

Capacity: 18

 

We need your help in cleaning up a portion of Pendleton Island, a beautiful coastal beach that is a part of the Nature Conservancy of Canada’s (NCC’s) Fundy Isles. At this day-long event, we will be removing garbage that has washed up on shore. If you are looking for an opportunity to give some TLC to a local New Brunswick shoreline while enjoying breathtaking views, this is the event for you! 

 

Pendleton Island is a 121-hectare uninhabited nature reserve owned by NCC. Because of its location, it is home to many different species of trees, such as red spruce and balsam fir. Given the high tidal range, extremely rapid tidal currents run through the passages and create unique marine habitats. Offshore waters support seasonal populations of harbour porpoise, white-side dolphin, minke whale, occasional fin and humpback whales, as well as harbour seal.

 

For more information, please email Caroline Blakely, conservation engagement intern, NCC, at caroline.blakely@natureconservancy.ca or call 506-440-6251. 

 

What to bring: Water, bagged lunch, sturdy hiking boots or steel-toed boots, work gloves, rain gear (just in case!), layers of clothing, bug spray, sunscreen and a hat.

Trail difficulty: Moderate.
