Holman’s Island Beach Cleanup
Help us protect island wildlife and habitat!
Friday, August 12
9 a.m.–12 p.m.
Looking for an island adventure? Here is an interesting opportunity where you can help keep our coastal habitats healthy.
Holman’s Island lies in Bedeque Bay, just across from the city of Summerside. It is formerly the site of one of PEI’s oldest hotel resorts. More than 100 years later, it stands today as a diverse natural area containing old growth forest and salt marsh habitat, which has been protected and managed by the Nature Conservancy of Canada since 2015. To keep the island beaches healthy for migratory shorebirds and other wildlife, we are looking for eager volunteers to help with a half-day cleanup along the three-kilometre coastline around the island.
Pre-registration is required for this FREE event. Register now!
