HI-Tec Beach Clean-Up Walks

coastal-clean-up-knysna

What it’s about

This year the festival is proud to be involved in driving 3 Coastal Clean-Up Walks.

Too much plastic and litter on our coast is not cool. This is a chance for walkers and lovers of the outdoors to give back and to help pick it up.

 
coastal-clean-up-walk

When & Where

Clean-Up Walk starts at 8:30 for 9:00 and takes place in Mossel Bay, Knysna and Nature’s Valley. 

We have teamed up with Love Our Trails to help make this happen. Please volunteer and get involved.

coastal-clean-up-walk-natures-valley

What you need

Bring a spirit of fun. Gardening gloves or others – there are not always pleasant things to pick up when dealing with trash.

A sandwich or two, sun hat, water and a good backpack to help carry back what we pick up.
