Description We will take the trail down from end of Marina to Big Beach, We will then drive (to save time) to end of Redonda and take beach trail to clean that beach, then drive down to end of Valdez to clean there. Either Redonda or Valdez beach will be our lunch spot. Depending on timing, weather, and enthusiasm, we can drive down the logging road to clean Shellaligan Beach as well. (it was done a few weeks ago but stuff is always washing in) On the way home, we can take the short hike to see the Old Growth trees off Valdez Road as a side-trip.

Departure Time 10 am HB Foods parking lot OR 10:20 am (approx) end of Marina Drive, Open Bay

Notes: Large plastic collection bags will be provided. All debris collected will be emptied into the large white collection bag (as at the end of KDB trail) at my house (this process to be arranged amongst us at the time). Bring a box-cutter or similar knife to cut buried rope. Garden gloves recommended. The trail down to Big Beach is quite steep, so more challenging to bring stuff up. There is a stream crossing at Big Beach, wear appropriate footwear or go barefoot and bring a towel. Bring lunch/snacks/water, dress for the weather. Must contact coordinator by 5 pm Sunday, May 14 to participate. Only registered participants will be notified of any changes.
