About this event

Kayak & SUP River Clean Up with subowti

River Clean Up open to kayakers, canoeists and stand up paddleboarders. Participants will set out on the river to do a co-ordinated clean up to remove the ever-growing amounts of marine litter that floats in the river. Please bring suitable clothing (including PFD) and your own kayak/canoe/SUP. Bags, gloves, pickers will be provided. Participants must be competent and confident to take part; no training will be provided. Clean Coasts will have an information stall set up to interact with people on the shore.

ABOUT ENJOY AND PROTECT

The Irish coast offers breath-taking views, beautiful beaches, epic cliffs, and more, and its unique beauty and character have been attracting visitors from all over the world. Furthermore, it provides its visitors with numerous opportunities to have fun, by taking part in water sports and coastal activities.

The Clean Coasts programme works with over 1,800 communities and over 37,000 volunteers nationwide to help protect and care for Ireland’s waterways, coastline, seas, ocean and marine life.

With the nice weather on the way, more people are expected to visit the beautiful coastal areas around the country, whether it is for sea swimming, water sports, or simply to enjoy the stunning landscape.

With our ‘Enjoy and Protect’ campaign, we are asking people to enjoy and celebrate Ireland’s stunning coastline, beautiful beaches, epic cliffs and all outdoor areas, but also to protect these natural treasures for future generations to enjoy too, by making more sustainable choices, taking part in beach cleans or even do something as quick and simple as a #2minutebeachclean.
