Beneficiary: Divers for Cleaner Lakes and Oceans
Organizer: Henry Wang
This past Thursday found us putting two divers in to Coal Harbour in downtown Vancouver to have a quick inspection for garbage at the request of Surfriders who are coorinating a beach clean up day. Boy, oh boy! Is that water ever polluted! What do you expect for a working downtown harbour. Having said that, we found very little garbage. We quickly made short work of the stuff that we did see. We were also very encouraged by the amount of marine life that we did see. There were lots of good sized crabs, little sea squirts, tube worm anemones, and other intertidal creatures. Good day.
This coming Thursday will take us to Edith Lake behind Alice Lake in Squamish. The park ranger has asked us to go have a look. This should be fun!

This Thursday we will be heading out to Rice Lake in Lynn Valley. Five of us will be in the water. We are expecting extremely low visibility and no previous knowledge of garbage in the lake. So it will be interesting to see what we find. Stay tuned!
