April 25, 2019 Hibou Beach Clean-up

Happy Spring!  Time to get working on the Sandy Beach Clean-up at Hibou again. It does make a difference. Unfortunately last year was put off due to weather.

When: Thursday April 25th 9:30 till noon or so

Where: meet us at the beach parking lot.

What to bring: Pitchforks and Wheel barrows are most useful. Rakes help you pull the debris up and onto the shore as much is still in the water this year.  You will need rubber boots as often you will be at the water’s edge. Work gloves can also be helpful. Bring  water and a snack.

If heavy rain, we will postpone. We will work if only drizzling.

Please let us know if you plan to join us.  Your help would be much appreciated.

Beach Clean-up Tues Apr 25, 2017 9:30am

When: Tuesday morning April 25th at 9:30 till noon

Where to meet: at the beach parking lot

What to bring: work gloves, tools such as rakes and pitchforks plus a wheel barrow if you have one.  we simply have to move the sawdust debris from the shore and dump it back a little so that the GSCA tractor can pick it up.

It is getting to be that time again.  Sometime in the last century there was  sawmill and they dumped the sawdust into Georgian Bay.  The current picks up what lies on the bottom and takes it to be dumped along the shoreline at the Hibou beach area.  By getting rid of it a little at a time, it makes the beach area much more pleasant for swimming through the summer.  We are hoping that by doing this in early spring this year we will catch more of the sawdust before it is washed into the water.

It is so helpful for us to know roughly how many will be there to help. If there is significant rain that morning we will have to reschedule. Many hands make lighter work.
