On September 17th, Surfrider Pacific Rim participated in the Hišinqʷiił Regional Gathering, organized by the Clayoquot Biosphere Trust to honour the spirit of healing and reconciliation, and to recognize the unique strengths of our communities, shared history, and cultural diversity. We organized and led a beach clean up on Wickaninnish Beach, and spread awareness about ocean protection and plastics pollution with all attendees.
