Our most popular volunteer led event, the Great Fundy Coastal Cleanup, connects New Brunswick’s residents and visitors to our most remote islands and picturesque shorelines.
The Nature Trust has been hosting shoreline cleanups since the 1990’s and in 2016, to streamline efforts and combat marine debris, the Great Fundy Coastal Cleanup was developed to serve as an opportunity for community, ENGO, industry and eco tourism engagement.
With 25+ project partners and sponsors, the Great Fundy Coastal Cleanup takes place at over 20 sites in and around the Bay of Fundy. From Campobello to Moncton, each year one Saturday in late August is dedicated to increasing the ecological integrity of our Bay of Fundy shorelines.
Data collected from the cleanup is submitted to the Huntsman Marine Science Centre and the Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup.
