Baker Lake cleanup, by canoe!
Join North Cascades Institute, RE Sources for Sustainable Communities North Sound Baykeeper Team and the United States Forest Service for an annual trash cleanup at Baker Lake on Sunday, October 12, from 9 am-5 pm.
Past cleanups have collected inflatable mattresses, beverage containers, busted lawn chairs, towels, coolers, fishing gear and poles.
“North Cascades Institute is supporting this event with volunteers and canoes because, as an environmental education organization, we value our public lands and our ability to bring people to places like Baker Lake for education and outdoor experiences. It’s our classroom! Stewardship is a powerful tool to connect folks to the natural world. A clean up like this has really tangible results and people can feel good about what they have done,” said Katie Roloson, Program Manager at the Institute.
Registration is required and a number of canoes will be supplied on a first come, first served basis. People who own canoes are encouraged to bring them and are also asked to register. No experience required.
