Beachwater Big Weekend - This Saturday
The Beachwater coastal environmental initiative which organises local individuals, groups and communities into getting together and cleaning up their local beaches is now in it's 18th year. The annual event takes place on the third weekend of september every year. During the event data is collected which is used in the Marine Conservation Societies Beachwater Big Weekend report. They then use this data which is collected around four times a year to get a better picture of what washes up on our shores and when. If you wish to register to be part of the event which is being held this weekend (17th and 18th of September) and to take part in the surveys head over to the Beachwater registration page. To get a better idea of which beaches they survey feel free to check out their list of surveyed beaches.
